Estrogen and Breast Cancer Awareness

The number of breast cancer diagnosis seems to be rising year by year. A ratio of 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, yet the link between estrogen and breast cancer is rarely discussed in doctor’s offices.

There is a new and innovative way to try and key in on early diagnosis, in order to achieve the best survival rate. An Estrogen Gene Test is a simple saliva test that identifies the mutated genes that cause breast cancer. Once mutations or “snips” are identified, doctors can assign those genes “protocols” to make them healthier.

This deadly disease is killing off our woman more and more each day. Life is a cherished journey, for which we intend to live out to its fullest, not to be cut short. Breast Cancer Survivor Stacia Hachem explains the terrifying angst of not knowing what will happen and how long the situation will take to play out.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. While most people are aware of breast cancer, many forget to take the steps to have a plan to detect the disease in its early stages and encourage others to do the same. We have made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go and need your help!
