While we do not yet know exactly what causes breast cancer, we do know that certain risk factors are linked to the disease. A risk factor is something that affects your chance of getting a disease such as cancer. Different cancers have different risk factors. Some risk factors, such as smoking, drinking, and diet are linked to things a person does. Others, like a person’s age, race, or family history, can’t be changed.
Getting in Stride held their weekly show yesterday and it was full of information! In case you missed it, Hosts Tee Auster and Nuala Maracas talked about breast cancer facts and awareness and even quizzed the audience. Be Hunted and Making Stride Commitee Member, Earth Nirvana, talked about the I Feel, You Feel Hunt! You can catch Getting in Stride every Sunday at 330 pm slt.
