                         WHAT IS BREAST CANCER?

Breast cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the breast. The damaged cells can invade surrounding tissue, but with early detection and treatment, most people continue a normal life. 


  1. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.
  2. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women.
  3. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women.
  4. More people are being diagnosed with breast cancer but survival rates are improving – probably as a result of improved treatment and earlier detection.
  5. If you are diagnosed with breast cancer, your doctor will likely recommend a combination of treatments depending on the type of cancer, the stage of the cancer and your overall health. Common ways of treating breast cancer include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, hormone theraphy&immunotheraphy




                   RISK FACTORS: 

  1. Lack of Physical Activity:  A sedentary lifestyle with little physical activity can increase your risk for breast cancer.
  2. Poor Diet:  A diet high in saturated fat and lacking fruits and vegetables can increase your risk for breast cancer.  
  3. Being Overweight or Obese:  Being overweight or obese can increase your risk for breast cancer. Your risk is increased if you have already gone through menopause.  
  4. Drinking Alcohol:  Frequent consumption of alcohol can increase your risk for breast cancer. The more alcohol you consume, the greater the risk.
  5. Radiation to the Chest:  Having radiation therapy to the chest before the age of 30 can increase your risk for breast cancer.  
  6. Combined Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT):  Taking combined hormone replacement therapy, as prescribed for menopause, can increase your risk for breast cancer and increases the risk that the cancer will be detected at a more advanced stage.
  7. Young people, as well as men, can be diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.

Inspiration This Tyme: Cassy Stahl (Breast Cancer Survivor )


As October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Addiemall indulges itself in a series of activities promoting breast cancer awareness among women around the globe. Addiemall is proud to present Cassy Stahl, a breast cancer survivor through  DIVAS ‘Inspiration this tyme’….

  •  Cassy like many breast cancer patients, was shocked by her Stage 3 diagnosis given that she was in her early 40s with no family history, had breastfed all three of her children and regularly performed self-exams. Still, it was those self-exams that likely saved her life. She knew the persistent knot under her skin didn’t feel right and an ultrasound confirmed that it was lobular breast cancer.
  • Just two weeks later, Cassy was pursuing treatment at MD Anderson while celebrating her 10-year wedding anniversary with husband Karl Lennart.
  • They took a break from her treatment to spend some quality time together at a nearby aquarium and Cassy remembers wondering whether she would make it  to be a part of  future anniversaries.


  • Thankfully, Cassy received tremendous care and maintained a positive attitude in her quest to become cancer-free. She says that while she would never wish cancer on anyone, she is grateful for the ways it made her rejuvenate  life.
  • Pre Cancer Crisis, she had spent 25 years as an engineer in manufacturing firms. However, following her treatment, Cassy Stahl was reminded of how much people and relationships matter, so she decided to pursue a career in real estate. She loves the fact that  she now has the opportunity to help clients find the homes where they will build memories.
  • She also recently joined the sales team for Sabika, an NBCF sponsor, because the jewelry company’s mission of empowering the women who handcraft the product, as well as their commitment to breast cancer awareness, inspired her. While both of these jobs keep her quite busy, they allow her more flexibility in her schedule so she can remain involved with her family.
  • For Cassy, Chilling Out now represents time spent loving those who mean the most to her, including kids Sophia, Linnea, and Stefan and she’s thankful for her husband’s continued commitment, noting that the stress of cancer can either drive couples apart, or bring them closer together. She also says that she loves herself more today than her pre-cancer self because she endures her strength and changed values.

On Behalf  Of Addiemall, We wish Cassy, her family, and all our Breast Cancer supporters  and fighters a beautiful month of Love, Care,Hope and Cure!
