Breast Cancer Gets Digital
Currently, one in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Those numbers are on the rise globally. Frightening. I remember thinking as a child that breast cancer wouldn’t effect my generation because of course there would be a cure when I got “old.” Sadly, I have already lost one high school classmate, Jen, to this disease. She was only 33, and a mother to 3 young boys.
Breastcancer.org Speaks to Xfinity
Technology is playing a role in breast cancer education and advancement of research. The Internet, television and radio are the most valuable broadcasters. Comcast Xfinity has recognized their role in sharing information on breast cancer prevention. I was thrilled to learn how the Xfinity.com’s Lifestyle Editor, Audrey Morrison, recently sat down with Dr. Weiss, the president and founder of Breastcancer.org, to ask her about the myths surrounding the illness. She shared powerful information, including ways to educate the public on awareness and detection, and what readers can do to minimize their risks. See the full article for prevention tips.

Tips on prevention, health and wellness, along with movies and TV shows that explore the issue and music selections from survivors such as Edie Falco, Cynthia Nixon, Sheryl Crow and Robin Roberts are currently available on Xfinity On Demand, XfinityTV.com and the Xfinity TV apps.
