National Breast Cancer Awareness Month


National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
October 2014

National Mammography Day : October 17, 2014



Breast Cancer Awareness In 2009, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) celebrated its 25th anniversary. Since its inception, NBCAM has been at the forefront of promoting awareness of breast cancer issues and has evolved along with the national dialogue on breast cancer. Today, NBCAM recognizes that although many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished. As NBCAM celebrates its 25th anniversary, they remain dedicated to educating and empowering women to take charge of their own breast health by practicing regular self-breast exams to identify any changes, scheduling regular visits and annual mammograms with their healthcare provider, adhering to prescribed treatment and knowing the facts about recurrence.

The third Friday in October each year is National Mammography Day, first proclaimed by President Clinton in 1993. On this day, or throughout the month, women are encouraged to make a mammography appointment. In 2014, National Mammography Day will be celebrated on October 17.

Below is a partial list of outstanding speakers from Capitol City Speakers Bureau who address Breast Cancer awareness and other topics relevant to Women and Women's Health:

Edna Campbell Edna Campbell : A star player for the WNBA's Sacramento Monarchs, Edna was diagnosed with breast cancer during her second season. She continued to live a normal life throughout her treatment and played basketball in spite of the cancer, becoming an inspiring symbol to many survivors. During the 2006 season, fans nominated Edna's victory over breast cancer as "one of the top four WNBA Decade Anniversary moments."
Merit Gest Merit Gest : Merit Gest is not a cancer survivor because she is a cancer previvor. Previvors are women with a known genetic disposition to cancer. Merit's risk of ovarian cancer was 54% and the likelihood that she would develop breast cancer in her lifetime was 87%. Today, because of preventative surgeries, her risk is less than 2%. Merit shares how a dramatic life experience has led her to becoming an expert in Possibility Thinking.
Ann Jillian Ann Jillian : Ann's prowess extends from the world's concert halls, to feature films and the Broadway stage. Ann has starred in over 25 TV movies and made hundreds of other TV appearances. Her television movie, The Ann Jillian Story, which recounted her victory over breast cancer, was the #1 film of the TV season; but more importantly, it delivered Ann's message about the hopeful side of breast cancer to its millions of viewers.
Kathy LaTour Kathy LaTour : Diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in 1986, Kathy LaTour underwent a modified radical mastectomy and chemotherapy for one malignant lymph node. Since her diagnosis of breast cancer at the age of 37, she helped found and now serves as Editor at Large for CURE: Cancer, Updates, Research & Education, a national quarterly magazine serving the informed cancer patient.
Kathy LaTour Joan Lunden : Joan Lunden is a well-known advocate for important life changes such as physical health, exercise and sleep, proper nutrition and emotional satisfaction. In June 2014, she was dealt with a life change of her own, a diagnosis of breast cancer. Following treatment, including a lumpectomy, chemotherapy and radiation, she is expected to make a full recovery.
Betty Rollin Betty Rollin : Betty Rollin is the author of the landmark best-seller, First You Cry, a moving memoir about her ordeal with breast cancer and mastectomy. In 2000, the book was re-published in honor of Betty's 25th "cancer anniversary." Betty, who gives what she calls "cheery cancer talks," is a speaker who brings intelligence, inspiration and humor to a subject that is on all women's minds.
Sherry Waldrip Sherry Waldrip : Breast cancer survivor Sherry Waldrip loves to stir her audience to an understanding that when cancer steals the song in their heart, friendship and laughter will sing it back to them. In an "intimate girlfriend-to-girlfriend fashion" she shares how her friends did that for her and motivates her audience to take an active role in their own health care and to encourage those they love to do the same.
