Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women and the fourth leading cancer cause of death in many parts of the world. According to data, in 2015 it is estimated that there will be 231,840 new cases of breast cancer and an estimated 40,290 people will die of this disease.¬† About one in eight women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.¬† There is an 89% survival rate for 5 years.
  • If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them.
  • If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often.
  • Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms.

You can help to fight Breast Cancer. Go to any of the organization fighting the cause and send a donation, or help to spread awareness.

Antonio Airport Transfers and Tours is committed to this cause. For every reservation booked at www.montegobayairporttonegril.com, we will purchase a pin from www.jamaicacancersociety.org
Thanks!

Fight Against Cancer

When Ila Powell told her story to us. We wanted to make a difference, and Fight Against Cancer. Ila is a Jamaican, and live in the USA. She came to the USA at age 35 years old, and worked until age 62. She spent all those years helping others, and only traveled on vacation to her home country Jamaica every six years for three months. Ms.Powell enjoyed her work. She was not doing the kind of work, Dosteovsky wrote about, ” all one would have to do would be to make him do work that was completely and utterly devoid of usefulness and meaning.” She was making a living so that one day she could return to her home country Jamaica.

March 22, 2013 change all her plans and goals. She was stricken with fracture bones and cancer. You see several years ago from a blood test, her doctor thought Hope, she saw something, and wanted to investigate it further. Ila was not going to claim Leukemia and did not proceed. Now what might of being stage 0 has turned into stage 4. Was Ms.Powell wrong for not claiming the disease? Maybe. Is she regretting the results now? Yes. Reasons: 1) She is economically broken, and 2) She is physically broken. Why is it Ms.Powell did not want to claim a disease that might exist? She had no insurance, and was hoping holistic treatment would be sufficient. Now Ms.Powell is force to claim it and seek assistant from the American Cancer Society and Charity Care.

A different Ila. I met a woman once after her chemo session. She was smiling. I said, “You are so happy!”
She replied, “I am.” She said, ” Cancer got me, and it was going to get someone. It got me. There is no need to be sad, because there is nothing I can do to change the process now. I pray. That is all I can do.”

If Ms.Powell did not share her story with us, and I had forgotten what another cancer person had told me, we would not have an interest in finding ways to Fight Against Cancer by supporting cancer research.

We will contribute $50 per month from www.montegobaytonegril.com to American Cancer Society, cancer research. We would also like to thank you for helping us to Fight the Fight Against Cancer.

There are so many worthy organization fighting this cause. However, the American Cancer Society reached out to Ms.Powell and we will start there. To learn more about the American Cancer Society. Log on to their website www.cancer.org
