CINCINNATI (Liz Bonis) -- Researchers recently discovered a breakthrough in early detection of breast cancer. It's a new gene now associated with breast cancer. Lori Staud, a local mother, was diagnosed with breast cancer just after Mothers Day this past year. She chose to have a double mastectomy and chemotherapy. She tested negative for traditional Braca I and II mutations usually associated with breast cancer and positive for this newly discovered gene mutation in the Palb2 gene. Dr. Jennifer Manders, a breast cancer surgeon, said, "So this is a gene that's been identified that predisposes women and men to breast and pancreatic cancer." According to the New England Journal of Medicine, the Palb2 mutation gives women a one in three chance of developing breast cancer by age 70. The risk is higher in women who have a family history of this disease which is also what determines which women should be tested for it. Dr. Manders continued, "For example, if she has multiple family members with breast and ovarian cancer

WEST HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - There are a number of ways women can detect breast cancer early. One Connecticut woman, who was diagnosed with an aggressive form, shared her story with Eyewitness News. “I have a high family history of breast cancer,” said Carmen Rodriguez. Doctors said breast cancer is not only the most common cancer among women, it’s also the second leading cause of death among women in the U.S. Rodriguez said she’s all too familiar with it. “We've lost a lot of family members both on the maternal and paternal side of the family,” she said. However, she said she used the losses as motivation to take command of her own health. She said she started getting mammograms at age 35. “Faithfully I do my mammograms,” Rodriguez said. “I do self-breast examinations, which is very important.” Because of her vigilance, she was able to fight a battle that was passed down to her. “I was diagnosed with what they call triple-negative breast cancer,” she explained, “which tends to be a very aggressive type of cancer.” Aside from her family history, Rodriguez said she had no signs it was coming. Her mammogram from the year before was perfectly clear. “Some breast cancers for unexplained reasons grow slowly over time,” said Dr. Jennifer Logan, a breast radiologist at Jefferson Radiology. “And others can be--within 2 months--could grow very rapidly.” The latter was Rodriguez’s case. “That tumor was growing rapidly and by me being vigilant, and going in to have that mammogram, and going in on a timely basis--we caught it on-time,” Rodriguez said. “There's lots of horror stories about how terrible it is to have a mammogram done,” Logan said. “The truth is, it's not the most comfortable thing but it's certainly worth the time and the discomfort to have a look and make sure that there's nothing starting there that we need to know about.” After all, Rodriguez said a mammogram could save a life. “If I would've been nonchalant about it and say, 'well I'm too busy I can put it off for a few months,’ it would have been life or death,” she said. For women with dense breasts, a second step is recommended. “[It’s a] screening breast ultrasound and that's basically using an ultrasound machine to scan the entire breast and look for unsuspecting disease,” Logan said. Now, Rodriguez said she’s celebrating her third year as a survivor. “Even though I've gone through a double mastectomy, even though I've gone through chemotherapy, you can't just relax,” she said. “I urge every woman to go get those mammograms. Don't procrastinate, do not wait. Just listen to that little voice and stay healthy!” For more information about Jefferson Radiology, visit www.jeffersonradiology.com.

http://www.rahxray.com Radiology Associates of Hartford and WVIT-TV NBC Connecticut teamed up to hold a mammography event as Partners in a Caring Community. The event offered free mammograms to uninsured women in hopes of early breast cancer detection. Station: WVIT-TV NBC Connecticut Originally Aired: Oct. 24, 2012 Anchor 1: Keisha Grant Anchor 2: Debra Bogstie Patient 1: Michelle Duthry Patient 2: Stella Malada Physician: Robert Perez, M.D. Keisha: October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and NBC Connecticut has teamed up with Radiology Associates of Hartford to hold a mammography clinic. The goal is to help save lives. NBC Connecticut's Debra Bogstie live in Glastonbury, where that clinic is underway right now. Deb, how's the turnout looking? Debra Bogstie: Well, Keisha, I can tell you that we've been told that so far more than 120 women have decided to take advantage of this mammography clinic that is still underway right here behind me. Now, many of these women stopping by here throughout the day today, are uninsured, and say they would not be able to afford the potentially life-saving scan on their own. Duthry: Something like this can change your whole life. Bogstie: When Michelle Duthry heard about this mammography clinic from a friend, she rushed right over to Radiology Associates of Hartford in Glastonbury. She's uninsured and unable to afford medical screenings on her own. Duthry: I have kids and I need to be here for them and be healthy. Routine mammograms are important in early detection. Bogstie: NBC Connecticut and Radiology Associates of Hartford teamed up for this clinic, which offers free mammograms to uninsured women. Dr. Robert Perez: The whole idea is to catch the cancer before it gets out of control, before it becomes more advanced. If we can do that, then we would consider our job done. Bogstie: Since these images help catch cancer early, doctors say they ensure more women are able to avoid mastectomies and chemotherapy during their treatment. Dr. Perez: It's a relatively minor exam, and it can just really make a whole difference in your life. If, God forbid, there is something there, we can catch it early, it can make a difference for you. Bogstie: Stella Malada not only lacks health insurance, she also has a history of breast cancer in her family. Malada: I was really afraid that they're going to find something wrong, but then if they do, then it's a great time to find out and not wait any longer. Bogstie: The clinic here technically runs through 7:00 tonight, but they tell me they expect to be here far longer finishing up all of their appointments. Because of the demand, Radiology Associates of Hartford is also offering other opportunities for uninsured women to get screened for breast cancer, including a clinic in Enfield on Saturday. Reporting live here in Glastonbury, Debra Bogstie, NBC Connecticut News. Keisha, back to you. Keisha: Debra, thank you. NBC Connecticut and Radiology Associates of Hartford are proud to be partners in a caring community. The clinic is underway at the facility on Sycamore Street in Glastonbury, as Deb mentioned, until 7:00 tonight.

A mutated BRCA gene can be inherited from a mother OR father. This means children with a parent who carries a BRCA mutation have a 50% chance of also inheriting the same mutation. Anthony had a double mastectomy and has passed his mutated BRCA2 gene, which he inherited from his dad, on to one of his daughters. Read more about Anthony at MaleBreastCancerCancerCoalition.org.

New Videos Every Day - Subscribe: https://goo.gl/2nkv2Z Danica Patrick is debuting the No. 10 Ford Warriors in Pink Fusion race car in this weekend’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Apache Warrior 400, then again Oct. 8 in the Bank of America 500 to mark Breast Cancer Awareness month. One of the most successful women in the history of racing, Patrick’s involvement in the cause stems from her personal experience supporting friends who have dealt with the disease, as well as her recognition that warriors battling breast cancer deserve More Good Days – an initiative made possible through Ford Warriors in Pink. Patrick’s No. 10 race car displays the warrior symbol to honor the powerful, courageous women and men engaged in the fight against breast cancer. Symbols are a key part of the inspirational message Ford Warriors in Pink represents – serving to uplift those who exhibit strength and courage in the face of their greatest battle. “The Ford Warriors in Pink race car really looks great,” said Patrick, one of the most successful women in the history of motorsports now driving for Stewart-Haas Racing. “Cancer impacts all of us. I bet there are very few people out there who don’t know someone impacted by breast cancer. My friend had a double mastectomy as a preemptive strike because she actually tested positive for the breast cancer gene. She went through everything and hopefully avoided it, but it hit close to home. “If we all work together, we can help make a difference,” Patrick added. “Whether it’s starting a conversation or inspiring donations, every little bit helps. That’s why I’m proud to drive the Warriors in Pink Fusion to help raise awareness for the cause.” Driving More Good Days As a preview to marking Breast Cancer Awareness month, Patrick helped kick things off with Ford Warriors in Pink by surprising patients with racing lessons at Chicagoland Speedway Sept. 20. These special events being held across the country are designed to help tap into a newfound fearlessness patients and survivors tend to experience by giving them free access to engage in new thrills and challenges. To empower people to take action and support their loved ones, Ford Warriors in Pink launched its More Good Days initiative in 2015. Since then, the program has delivered more than 80,000 More Good Days experiences across the country – ranging from rides to treatment centers to special patient surprises including racing lessons and more. “Each year, we ask ourselves what more we can do,” said Tracy Magee, Ford Warriors in Pink brand manager. “Through strategic collaborations and engaging experiences, we hope to continue to raise awareness and encourage friends, families and loved ones to help in simple but meaningful ways.” Ford Warriors in Pink has been unrelenting for 23 years working to help breast cancer patients and their families. To date, Ford has dedicated more than $133 million to research, education and patient resources. Visit Our Website: http://www.Motorward.com
