Breast Cancer Priority #1: Saving Lives

Breast Cancer Priority #1: Saving Lives | Indi's Yr 9 Journal | Scoop.it

"Breast Cancer Awareness month is coming to a close. And I am grateful. Every year it brings a sea of pink and this year was no different. But has anything meaningful changed from last year? Have we made progress?

In 2010, the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC) launched Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®, our campaign to know how to end breast cancer by January 1, 2020. We pledged to be transparent, and to issue annual reports on progress in breast cancer and in our campaign. Our 2013 Progress Report, read in the context of the baseline 2011 report, addresses those issues.

At NBCC, we assess progress from the perspective of advocates, primarily women or men who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, many of us living with metastatic disease or the risk of it. Our mission is to end breast cancer for everyone and that is the lens through which we view progress. And the best measure of progress is lives saved.

What is the current state of progress? In 2010, globally, 438,000 women died of breast cancer.

Continuing at the same rate of "progress," by 2030, that number is expected to be 747,802. This past year in the U.S., 39,620 women and 410 men died of breast cancer. While it is good news that the U.S. mortality rate has been decreasing, the rate of decrease has slowed. Not what we expect from progress. And that measure can be misleading as it is based on breast cancer deaths, and does not include deaths from treatments."

Indiana Brown's insight:

This article is very concerning and shocking to me as I never thought teens could be so hooked on being high and out of it that they would get high at school. This seems like a very serious issue if teens are now resorting to cough medicine as a way of getting high.

This article is very relatable to teens as our generation and society is becoming more and more reliant on drugs and alcohol to make them feel better. Taking drugs and drinking alcohol isn't a cure for being depressed long term, and in some cases makes it a lot worse. Teens are resorting to alcohol and drugs more because they are searching for an instant high.

This article is confronting as the thought of 7 year olds doing drugs is now a reality. Drugs and alcohol have become such a big part of our society that kids as found as 7 are taking after people they are around.

Barley grass is becoming increasingly apparant in the curing treatments for some cancers. Although people think it may be a remedy for/from 'treehuggers', it may contribute some healthy and nutrient-filled factors to the well-being of someone with cancer.

I think that this article is really good because rape drugs are a big issue in clubs and bars these days as many woman are being drugged and raped. This to me is a breakthrough as it stops people using the rape drugs and getting away with it.

I think that this article is really helpful as a lot of teens these days are aware of the risks of binge drinking and continue to do it. I think that if there are more article in magazines that are read by teens about the serious risks of binge ringing it could have an affect on society.
