The Month of October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the chance for us all to combine our efforts to raise awareness about the importance of early detection. Breast Cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women.
E&V Sara Grech has organized a social event, a casual get together at our Market Centre in Mriehel. All money is going towards Pink October Malta
Ms Rita Brincat joined the event as a breast cancer survivor. She shared her experiences with us as well as giving us tips on how to prevent complications. As Ms Rita Brincat is one of the most known Maltese personalities she had to show her strength whilst doing the therapy and being visible to the public due to her TV program and shows as a magician assistant. Every time she went for the therapy she kept notes on her personal diary to keep the motivation high. She even said that when she used to go for the therapy she used to dress really well as it was her own form of motivation and joke around with the nurses and other people in the ward.
In her case, she survived twice the conditions of breast cancer and by this, she wants to motivate everyone that would be passing through the whole process.
Although the precise causes of breast cancer are still unclear, the main risk factors are known. Most women considered at high risk for breast cancer do not get it, while many with no known risk factors do develop breast cancer. Among the most significant factors are advancing age and a family history.
Let’s express our moral support for women with breast cancer.
