Free breast cancer tests at AIIMS-P

Organization has local focus on helping fight breast cancer

It's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and after years of not receiving a proclamation from Cameron County because of funding cuts affecting programs, Planned Parenthood has received a proclamation.

It helps local breast cancer fighters and survivors shine a light on the disease.

"When men wear pink, which is becoming more common now, but if they wear it every single day, especially if they wear a lot of pink like some of our "Real Men" do, people will ask them and it gives them the opportunity to remind women to get those mammograms", said Stefanie Moon with the American Cancer Society.

The Pink Room is located at the second level of The Northwing (breastfeeding station/mall clinic).

October is breast cancer awareness month, and Athleta has a bold statement for any woman who has undergone a mastectomy: Yes, there's a sports bra for you, too.

Through "Proud to be Pink" fundraising activity in October, Asda will help to achieve improved care, support and information for anyone affected by breast cancer, as well as funding vital research to help stop women dying of the disease in the future. Initially, it only covered breast cancer.

"Bright Pink is so grateful for the continued support of Maria Shireen as they not only fund our work, but also amplify our breast and ovarian health messaging to their customers", said Katie Thiede, Bright Pink CEO. "I encourage all women to talk to their healthcare providers about mammograms and other methods of early detection and what can be done to reduce that risk". Stella McCartney lost her mother in 1998 to complications from breast cancer and Alicia Keys also witnessed her mother's battle with the illness.
