This message is incomplete. Breast cancer affects both sexes and in the media it is made to sound like it is a women only problem. I have personally known men who suffered because of it. The mortality rate of men with breast cancer is much higher that for women because it is not discovered as quickly. Because breast cancer is much more common in
women, many men do not realize they can develop
this disease. This can delay diagnosis and as a result,
some cancers are not found until they have progressed
to a later stage. However, when cancer is found at the
same stage among men and women, the survival rates
are similar. Because the male breast is much smaller
than the female breast, it is more likely the disease
will spread to the chest wall. For this reason, it is
important to find the cancer early for successful
treatment. See your doctor right away if you have
any lumps or changes in your chest area.

Shari was fortunate...but, having lost all my family to this disease, and seeing different treatments,and seeing that natural ways caused less suffering, I went the natural way, and found many wonderful products, recently found a product that is awesome...do a google search on ags and read about it. It really does what it says it does...I know by my own experience! Having gotten my cancer from radiation, I chose to do ultrasound to detect my own, instead of mammograms, and it worked just fine, without the harmful effects of mammography. I began by reading the book written by Suzanne Summers, "Knockout", and it covers many different choices, and tells about her own personal experience with this disease.

Fighting breast cancer is something many women are faced with. One thing I recently discovered I can do to help raise money for the fight against breast cancer is donate my excess breast milk from home through Helping Hands Milk Bank. Not only does this program help raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, but also helps premature infants in intensive care. This October, breast cancer awareness month, nursing moms can support Sheri and others in the same situation by raising money for breast cancer research.
