More than 250,000 women in the United States will be diag- nosed with some form of breast cancer annually - that's approxi- mately 1 in 8 women. More than 40,000 succumb to the disease every year. To further prevention, treatment and educa- tion, October has been named Breast Cancer Awareness Month. National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is held every October to raise awareness of the disease and raise money for research. One of its major goals is to encourage women to self- check for early detection of breast cancer. Breast cancer typically appears in cells lining the breast's milk ducts, or in the glands that pro- duce milk. Cancer cells formed in the breast can spread through to other places in the body via the lymph nodes. While the vast majority of cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in women, more than 2,000 new cases of breast cancer are diag- nosed in American men each year. For either sex, symptoms of breast cancer may be detectable through breast self-exam, a doctor's exam and/or mammography. The most common sign of: breast cancer is a lump found in the breast .or armpit area. Because Linda Said, above, was diagnosed in 1987. She not only survived cancer, she triumphed by completing several marathons, two 60 mile Avon 3-Day Breast Cancer walks and recently climbed Mt. Kilamanjaro in Africa.
