Breast cancer can occur at any age; however, in younger women it tends to be more aggressive.

More than a fifth of the almost 500,000 women who were offered breast or bowel cancer screening reported some disability; difficulties with mobility were the most commonly reported. Every dollar raised goes towards screening and diagnosing breast and cervical cancer. If you have breast cancer in the family or you have a mutation on the BRCA-1 and/or BCRA-2 gene, you are also at a higher risk for breast cancer. Bright Pink's innovative programs educate and equip young women to assess their risk for breast and ovarian cancer, reduce their risk, and detect these diseases at early, non life-threatening stages.

In addition, the majority of women surveyed were unaware that their lifestyle choices could put them at greater risk. Health experts recommend that women between the ages of 40-44 consider having an annual mammogram.

Some breast cancers are only seen on imaging, like mammograms or ultrasounds. Every breast cancer is approached individually, and requires a unique approach. The walk is created to raise funds for the WVDT through donations and participation. An after party is scheduled at Caddys on Central, 217 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, at 9 p.m.
