MIO conducts breast cancer awareness programme

Thousands Unite for Annual Breast Cancer Walk

Studies show that more active women are less likely to suffer from breast cancer so the event was very relevant for the global month of breast cancer awareness.

Survivors, supporters and volunteers crowded the grass of Riverfront Park to mark the 25th annual march through the city's heart for the American Cancer Society's "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk". "It's all about making sure that breast cancer is eradicated, and with prevention and education awareness, we know that we can do that".

According to the American Cancer Society, more than 252,710 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018.

Alia Abu Alola said: "I was always wishing for basketball teams in Saudi Arabia to be able to play friendly games with a cause so we all can be winners, and it is really good to have awareness about breast cancer and to combine it with sports". Szpara told Salon she found out in 2016, after being cancer-free for seven years, that it had come back and spread to her lungs and liver.

She said: "The charity is very close to my heart". Now having a terminal illness, it is very different and it is isolating.

After MacGregor's first diagnosis, she encouraged cancer patients to focus on surviving and beating the disease. We should celebrate life every day. It was to celebrate their scars, as badges of bravery in their battle with cancer.

Jeddah United basketball club has held a "friendly game" event to support the Zahra breast cancer association.

Umpqua Valley Christian athletic director assistant Sheri Gather said the school does not now host a breast cancer fundraiser, but does not rule our holding one in the future. Today, a portion of each dollar donated to Hope Scarves goes toward translational research.

Morrison was just 27 when her mother died. "We look forward for the continued support in 2019 and remind St. Maarten that it takes a community to help save lives", they said.
