Wyckoff Torpedoes Soccer Players Raise $1,200 For Breast Cancer Research

Wyckoff Torpedoes Soccer Players Raise $1,200 For Breast Cancer Research

WYCKOFF, N.J. —Dozens of players from the Torpedoes Soccer Club recently raised more than $1,200 for breast cancer research and treatment.

Players on the club’s 35 teams purchased the pink socks and are wearing them during games this month, Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The club raised $1,280, said Brian Weis, a club board member.

The money will be donated to Susan G. Komen, previously the Susan G. Komen Foundation, a national nonprofit dedicated to helping breast cancer patients and their families.

It is the second year the club has sold the socks; more than $2,000 was donated last year when the club sold 375 pairs of socks.

The Latest Developments in Breast Cancer Research

breastcancer-awareness2

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and in honor of that, we are highlighting some of the latest breakthroughs in the cancer research all thanks to the many donations made throughout the world. Breast cancer is important because it affects so many and scientists are constantly doing research to cure this disease.

Researching habits and genes

The studies focus on figuring out what habits and lifestyle choices affect the onset of breast cancer in addition to the gene related causes. Studies are examining factors such as weight, diet, and exercise in relation to how they influence breast cancer. Furthermore, explorations of gene variations are examined to figure out if there are certain people who are more likely to get the disease.

Reducing the effectiveness of breast cancer

A number of solutions are already being looked at to reduce the severity of breast cancer, which includes hormone therapy. Tamoxifen and raloxifene are two drugs that have already been approved to help reduce the severity of breast cancer, but there is still unease about any side effects. Some studies have examined dietary supplements such as vitamins B6 and B12, omega 3 fatty acids, folate, and grapeseed extract to help once someone has been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Other latest developments

Molecular breast imaging, or otherwise known as Scintimammography, involves the injection of a tracer drug that’s slightly radioactive and a special camera is used for detection. It’s a technique that can potentially help locate breast cancer early on. However, for those who have already been diagnosed, Oncoplastic surgery is a procedure that’s available while the cancer is still in its early stages. However, the side effects of the surgery are that the sizes and/or the shape of the breast may be altered.

It is great seeing how donations are furthering the treatment for breast cancer. See how All Year Cooling is giving back by “going pink” and donating a portion of every AC installation to Breast Cancer Awareness here.

Tom Ferry – Your Coach Supports Breast Cancer Research

Tom Ferry – Your Coach is proud to support breast cancer research and honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

During Success Summit, a t-shirt drive was held to raise money for breast cancer research.

We are pleased to announce our donations totaled $84,000, which will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and UC Irvine Health.

UC Irvine Health, a facility that is home to one of only 47 National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer centers in the United States, received a $20,000 donation. Under the leadership of Dr. Alice Police and the Pacific Breast Care Center team, UC Irvine Health has researched and created new innovations to help treat those with breast cancer.

“Tom and Kathy Ferry’s philanthropic support means so much to my program” said Dr. Alice Police, Breast Surgical Oncologist at UCI Health. “With their gift, my team can continue research that will have a direct impact on patient care, and improving quality of life.”

The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), the world’s largest private funder of breast cancer research, and the highest-rated breast cancer organization in the U.S. received a $64,000 donation.

“We are grateful for supporters like Tom and Kathy Ferry who fuel our mission to fund critical research,” said Myra Biblowit, CEO and president of BCRF. “Each year the generosity of partners brings us closer to achieving a future without breast cancer.”
