Five years ago, my cousin Sylvia, whom I’m very close to, was diagnosed with Stage 3A breast cancer. In her case, the cancer spread to auxiliary lymph nodes which resulted in a double radical mastectomy. Today, through aggressive treatment and superior support and care, Sylvia is cancer free and has joined the ranks of the proud and grateful survivors of this insidious disease.

Every week, over 100 women in Washington state are diagnosed with breast cancer. Being diagnosed with this disease is as scary as you can imagine. I would know. Two years ago, I was diagnosed. Because I had the unending support of my family, a great job with a compassionate staff, health insurance and — most importantly — an early diagnosis I was fortunate. For far too many women — and men — in our community, this is not the case. I hear these stories every day.

The scene: It is a dark and stormy night. Howling wind bowls trees over. Lightning bolts flash. Cars skid off wet pavement to knock down power poles.

You may be well aware of vitamin D’s part in building better bones, but did you know it might also help in prevention of breast cancer? Unfortunately, many of us in the Northwest are not getting enough vitamin D. Overweight individuals are at increased risk of low vitamin D levels, possibly because excess fat absorbs and holds onto vitamin D, making it unavailable to the body.

Every week, 100 Western Washington women are diagnosed with breast cancer, which continues to be the second most frequently diagnosed cancer among women in the U.S., after skin cancer. We don’t yet know the exact causes of breast cancer, and many myths about breast cancer continue to exist. But probably the best way to prevent and survive a breast cancer diagnosis is to be informed.
