Nyeri County to offer free breast cancer checks for 30 days

Breast cancer is the most common malignant disease of women. According to the American Cancer Society, campaign funds contribute to breakthrough research, providing free rides to breast cancer treatments, a live 24/7 support helpline, and more. "This can be life-changing for these women", DeAngelo told the outlet of his foundation's accomplishment.

Early detection is the key.

In many cases, women lose their self-esteem or even suffer from depression when breasts have to be removed because of cancer. At each event, the foundation sponsors mammograms for 53 women. Regular preventative examinations can help to detect the breast cancer at an early stage. This means there is a 1 in 8 chance that she will develop breast cancer.

GE Healthcare's Senographe Crystal digital mammography machine will be used for the screening at the Nyeri County Referral Hospital. Featured speaker, Jeannie Blaylock, the founder of First Coast News Buddy Check 12, provided an informative session on breast cancer health for men and women.

The government has ensured access to digital mammography services across the 47 public hospitals across the country for women in places that need it the most.

Five years may have passed since DeAngelo Williams lost his mother to breast cancer, but the former National Football League player is still committed to fighting against the disease.

The good news is that death rates from female breast cancer dropped 40% from 1989 to 2016.

Former NFL running back DeAngelo Williams is still dedicated to fighting breast cancer. The campaign is geared towards cultivating a culture for screening amongst women.
