Breast cancer tied to bacterial imbalances

This year, Porter Health Care System is a sponsor of the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in Porter County. The partnership aims at enhancing cancer treatment facilities in the country, through the establishment of Myanmar's first ever clinic for breast cancer treatment.

At 1 p.m. Wednesday Porter Regional Hospital will hold the annual inspirational Blow Away Breast Cancer flag raising ceremony at the hospital's front entrance, 85 E. US 6. The celebrity survivor of breast cancer also added that role of family members in helping the women to battle breast cancer is always crucial.

"The new test will give women more options and help them to make a more informed decision", she said. Proceeds from the event back the center's patient resource program.

Among those who participated in the event were breast cancer survivors, their parents, students and interested youngsters. Some are fighting against it. In addition, the fee supports Henry Ford's Game On Cancer which provides financial assistance and services to help cancer patients.

So now when you see pink, think of ways to beat breast cancer once and for all.
