This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is like any other cancer, resulting from an uncontrolled growth of cells which leads to a tumor. Symptoms can be hard to detect in early stages of breast cancer, thus it is important for one to go to mammogram check-ups. Also, contrary to popular misconception, breast cancer can happen to both males and females although the risk is slightly higher for females. The risk also increases as one ages and may also be affected by various lifestyle decisions such as drinking. There are many events planned in order to promote awareness of breast cancer. For instance,this upcoming Sunday is the “Making Strides Against Breast Cancer” walk in Chicago. It is a noncompetitive 5-mile walk held near Lawrence Ave. and the Lakefront aiming to bring together those who have been affected in some way by breast cancer and show that they can also make a difference. Avon Walk in June is also another event with a similar purpose. Please come out and support them! – Vivian
