Fans sport pink for breast cancer awareness

Posted October 14, 2016

"We hope to continue sharing the Pink Ribbon Girls' mission of service as well as the importance of breast cancer awareness, healthy living and nutrition for women with our Pink Ribbon Loaves".

The cost of cancer treatment varies wildly, with no apparent rhyme or reason, Dr. Sharon Giordano and colleagues at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center reported Monday in the journal Cancer.

Breast cancer is also prevalent in men, but most men diagnosed with it are over the age of 60. And swapping one treatment for a less toxic alternative cut both the side effects and the costs.

Dr. Jayne Paulson, breast surgeon with Spectrum Health Medical Group and Tammy Meyers, breast cancer survivor came to talk about how to encourage everyone to spread the word about breast health. But 85 percent of breast cancers happen in women who have no family history of breast cancer because of genetic mutations.

By the close of 2016, Kroger will have donated more than $30 million to support breast cancer research, education and services since 2006.

Officials say The Huntsman 5K is a great cause to get behind because it helps honor those who have cancer who have died from cancer.

Each year, almost 300 events are held across the United States, bringing in more than $60 million.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month will also provide a chance to inform Costa guests about the related issues: a video will be broadcast in their cabins illustrating the details of the "Pink is Good" campaign, accompanied by a study pack and a schedule of all the "pink" happenings on board included in the diario di bordo (onboard daily program).
