Time to get moving 🏃🏽‍♀️ ⁠

5 Ways to Boost Breast Health

Women who drink more than one alcoholic beverage per day — even just two drinks — are at an increased risk of developing breast cancer. Women who have three or more drinks per week after being diagnosed with breast cancer run a greater risk that their breast cancer will recur.
According to the American Cancer Society, the amount of alcohol consumed is important, not the type of alcoholic drink. A serving of an alcoholic drink is defined as 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine and 1 1/2 ounces of hard liquor. https://health.clevelandclinic.org/5-ways-to-boost-breast-health/?fbclid=IwAR0O-LrmzwkDO_Qpi1vqEnfcBHgsbOzVNkcXmV-G1Jx46A8bhXsjlua9udI

Screening for Cancer

Screening means checking your body for cancer before you have symptoms. Many cancers can be treated more effectively if they are found early. Talk to your doctor to see if getting screened for breast, cervical, colorectal or lung cancer is right for you. To read more, visit: http://bit.ly/2lh852V

Cancer screening is checking for cancer in people who don't have symptoms. Screening tests can help doctors find and treat several types of cancer early, but cancer screening can have harms as well as benefits.

Mask up for Mammogram! Preventative cancer screenings are essential!

Can you believe we've been in this pandemic for a year? This is a tough time to navigate—not to mention taking charge of our breast and ovarian health.

Firstly - do not wait until you are vaccinated to go in for your well-woman or mammogram. It is so important to be taking those preventive steps for your health.

If you are getting a vaccine and do want to time your mammogram, The Society of Breast Imaging recently put forth a recommendation (2021) to consider, if possible and so long as it does not considerably delay care, scheduling your mammogram prior to the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine or four or more weeks after your second dose of the vaccine.

Join Bright Pink, Myriad Genetics, and the Tigerlily Foundation in our #MaskUpForMammograms pledge to ensure you are taking care of yourself and accessing the healthcare you need and deserve.

Take the pledge now and commit to masking up for yourself to live your brightest days. https://brightpink.org/myriad-sign-up-page/

An estimated 22 million cancer screenings were missed or canceled last year just between March and June.
We know that early detection can save lives. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) estimates that a 6-month disruption in care and screening in 2020 could cost us nearly 10,000 additional lives over the next 10 years.
These are sobering facts. And they’re the reason why we’re urging you to talk to your doctor about scheduling your own needed cancer screenings without delay and to encourage your loved ones to do the same.
We can help, call us today 563-421-1913 or 888-5327140.

Black women have the highest death rates of all racial and ethnic groups, and are 40% more likely to die of breast cancer than white women. The reasons for this difference result from many factors, including having more aggressive cancers and fewer social and economic resources. To improve this disparity, CDC suggests black women need more timely follow-up and improved access to high-quality treatment. http://ow.ly/X2eH50DmIMG

Divergent Paths: A Health Equity Story

Meet Jenny and MaryAnn: childhood friends, both with breast cancer, but with very different experiences. Many structural and social factors can impact a person's ability to prevent, find, treat, and survive cancer. These include such examples as racial residential segregation, poverty, lack of access to healthy and affordable foods, or inadequate pay, housing, or access to transportation. It's important to understand that personal responsibility and making healthy choices is only one part of someone's overall health.
