Breast Cancer Stats, Become Informed

Posted by peggysue on October 19, 2014 in Uncategorized with Comments closed |

One of our breast cancer survivors with metastatic breast cancer wants to remind people that mammograms do not pick up all breast cancers. She is Stage IV. Soon she will be granted her wish through the Dream Foundation. I know how she feels because my breast cancer 10 years ago was not picked up with a mammogram. We are hoping that digital mammography will be picking up more know days. The sad fact is that it is not. The problem is that when a patient has 2-3 surgeries, we know that it is not picking up breast cancer. (This is from another patient we have worked with.)

Everyday in the world, 1,000 women die of breast cancer. In the United States close to 40,000 die of breast cancer. In St. Louis county it is actually 29 who die per year when rounded off. This comes from the MN Dept. of Health, Mike Malone, the epidemiologist that I talked to recently.

The question remains, how can we prevent breast cancer from metastasizing, why does it get worse? Some patients we have know were diagnosed with stage I or stage I1 initially. Then all of a sudden they have full blown metastatic breast cancer.

Preventing metastatic breast cancer is a goal of the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC from Washington DC). This is becoming a political issues as well. Do we care about the women of our country? Men get breast cancer as well. How many lives must be lost? When will the answers be found?

This country has raised 1.7 billion annually. Who is making these donations accountable?

Breast Cancer Awareness is at an all time high according to the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC located out of Washington DC).  There is lack of results from all the awareness, unfortunately.

We treat breast cancer by the cookie cutter approach, surgery, chemo, radiation, and sometimes pills. Most research is geared at treatment, not prevention.

Research needs to be geared more toward prevention. The dollars are not in prevention, only treatment. I ask you to stand up, let your voice be heard.

If we can develop all these vaccines in this world, why can’t we have one for breast cancer prevention?  For example, the HPV vaccine has helped a lot. Hasn’t cervical cancer declined in young women?That would be an interesting story.

Let’s change the landscape. What are ways to prevent breast cancer? Will the vaccine being developed prevent breast cancer? Is there a way to share information among the stake holders who want to guard their research? Is there a way to make all breast cancer research fundraisers accountable when they don’t even present at national conferences? Then there are those you can never find on line. They have large salaries, state comments that cannot be documented.

Then when we look at metastatic breast cancer, we over treat these patients until their immune systems scream out, “I give up.” 

Breast cancer has INCREASED in this country. It use to be 1 in 11 women would get breast cancer. It has RISEN to 1 in 8. Young women can and do get breast cancer. Your risk does increase with age.

Losing 29 women in St. Louis county a year is NOT acceptable. This effects their whole families being.

-Circle of Hope belongs to the National Breast Cancer Coalition located in Washington DC.
