Although triple-negative tumors occur in only about 15 percent of patients with invasive breast cancer in the United States (or almost 40,000 each year), they account for a disproportionate share of deaths, as many as 30 percent to 40 percent. In the future, Pejsa said she hopes they can have a whole week dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness.

It might surprise a lot of people to hear that I don't even know what "type" of breast cancer my mom was diagnosed with. Rose Odai (Tutor at Korle NTC) educated participants on breast cancer, as well as the need to practice self-examination.

The standard treatment is chemotherapy, which most patients quickly develop resistance to.

Previous studies found that immunotherapies work best in patients with high levels of a protein that the drugs target, and the plan for the breast cancer study called for analyzing how women fared according to that factor if Tecentriq improved survival overall. If a woman finds lumps or feels discomfort or pain, she should seek medical help sooner rather than later. We are changing how triple-negative breast cancer is treated in proving for the first time that immune therapy has a substantial survival benefit.

Encouraging her staff and students for donating for the cause, KGS principal Asha Alexander called them "real heroes" and said: "They are courageous, selfless, stepped forward to donate their hair and we are proud of them.
