Join Us In Going Pink: Raising Awareness for Breast Cancer

Clark, N.J. (2019) – Each Friday during the month of October all Twin Boro Physical Therapy Staff Members will be wearing PINK to bring awareness for Breast Cancer. We are asking all current, former patients, friends, to join us and wear pink every Friday during the month of October!

Breast Cancer affects one in eight women (about 12%). The National Cancer Institute estimates that in 2019, 268,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S., along with 62,930 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer. It is responsible for more female deaths in the US than any other cancer, besides lung cancer. In fact, as of January 2019, there are more than 3.1 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. and about 85% are those who have no family history of the disease.

Early detection and treatment of breast cancer is the key to higher survival rates of our mothers, grandmothers, aunts, sisters and friends!

Twin Boro Physical Therapy NJ Raising Awareness for Breast Cancer

From the National Cancer Institute:

Symptoms of breast cancer may include a lump in the breast, a change in size or shape of the breast or discharge from a nipple. Breast self-exam and mammography can help find breast cancer early when it is most treatable. Treatment may consist of radiation, lumpectomy, mastectomy, chemotherapy and hormone therapy.

Thanks to increased awareness for breast cancer, early detection and improvements in treatment options, survivorship is on the rise. Research also shows that physical exercise and activity are key factors to help breast cancer survivors regain vitality and quality of life.
