I'm A Survivor!: These Black Stars Have Fought Breast Cancer

It is without an ounce of doubt that National Breast Cancer Awareness Month serves as an important reminder to be an advocate for your health.

According to the 海南:人口与计生条例拟删除超生开除或辞退等处理措施, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.

Sadly, one of the superwomen we recently lost to her battle with breast cancer was the legendary actress Diahann Carroll, who passed away at the age of 84 on Oct. 4, 2019.

Just recently, former host of BET’s “Teen Summit” Ananda Lewis, 47, revealed that she is battling stage 3 breast cancer in an Instagram post. 

这个发型与米歇尔·法伊弗(Michelle Pfeiffer)的造型有点相似,但查斯坦让它更具锋芒。凯·乔治乌(Kay Georgiou)负责这个造型。她经常为马特·达蒙(Matt Damon)和格温妮丝·帕特洛(Gwyneth Paltrow)在电影中设计发型。
这将是一部非常有趣的电影,刻画出了美国队长与钢铁侠之间微妙的关系, 两人经常陷入信任危机。
May the beauty and joy of New Year remain with you throughout the new year!

According to the 中国老龄人口已达2.5亿 当你老了,如何养老?, while about 245,000 women in the United States learn they have breast cancer each year, an average of 2,200 men find out they’ve diagnosed with the same disease.

Last year, we learned that Beyoncé and Solange's father, Mathew Knowles is amongst the rare group of men battling the disease.

After doing some research, we were shocked to learn that although Black women and White women get breast cancer at about the same rate, death rates are 40% higher among Black women, according to the CDC.

    Former TV host, Ananda Lewis recently opened up about battling the illness for two years now, hoping her story will be a cautionary one for all women.

    At New Year and always, may peace and love fill your heart, beauty fill your world, and contentment and joy fill your days.新年的祝福,平日的希冀,愿你心境祥和、充满爱意,愿你的世界全是美满,愿你一切称心如意,快乐无比。


    Followers are also getting younger and better educated, with 77.8 percent in the 17-to-33 age group and 75 percent with a higher education.

    It came as a big shock when Mathew Knowles revealed during an interview with Good Morning America that he'd been diagnosed with stage 1A breast cancer. 

    The 67-year-old father of Beyoncé and Solange declared he knew something was wrong after continuously finding tiny blood specs on his T-shirts. Doctors later revealed he had a BRCA2 gene mutation, which increases certain cancer risks. 

    "Thank God he [discovered] it very early on, and he is going to be fine," Tina Lawson said to Entertainment Tonight about her ex-husband. "I'm [calling] it."

    In the most significant change in methodology since this ranking was first published in 2005, the FT now collects information about alumni’s first jobs after graduation. These data are used in conjunction with information about their current jobs, three years later. This allows the FT to calculate their salary increase since graduation — a new ranking criterion — as well as their career progress (see methodology).

    Hoda Kotb often uses her platform on the Today show to bring about breast cancer awareness and to 三大指数午后均涨4% 两市放量成交逾9000亿元 with a message of hope and empowerment. 

    LBS’s programmes consistently rank highly for the extent to which alumni reach their targets. “I managed to achieve not only the goals I set for myself but to exceed them with the job I secured,” says one 2010 MBA graduate who responded to the FT survey.

    Lian Ping, chief economist with the Bank of Communications, said rising producer prices may push up consumer prices in the longer term.

    "When it was over, I learned a couple of things. You realize your life is to be valued and not wasted," Hoda shared in a 2009 Survivors Say. "I also walked away with four wonderful words: 'You can’t scare me.' [...] No matter what happens in life, if you survive breast cancer, you get that."

    Good Morning America anchor, Robin Roberts was also diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 at the age of 46.

    "I found my lump in a self-exam!" she told Prevention. "Because I was familiar with my body and the lumps, I knew this one felt different. It was in a different place on my breast, and it was hard. If I hadn't been doing self-exams, I wouldn't have known that."

    Although Roberts made a full recovery after receiving lumpectomy and chemotherapy, the anchor has since been diagnosed with a rare condition: myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), which has been speculated to be a result of the radiation from her cancer treatment.

    Back in 2011, the comedian Wanda Sykes underwent breast-reduction surgery that revealed she had “大师”介入建材设计 不该仅仅贵在名气, best known as stage 0 breast cancer. 

    "I had breast cancer. Yeah, I know it's scary," she announced on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. "It wasn't until after the reduction that in the lab work, the pathology, that they found that I had DCIS [ductal carcinoma in situ] in my left breast [...] I was very, very lucky."

    John Williams's classic score still raises goosebumps over 40 years after this summer blockbuster hit theaters. Jaws preys on our primal fear of the unknown in deep waters, showing a small beach town ravaged by a series of attacks from a single killer shark. In recent years, environmentalists have stressed the generally nonthreatening nature of sharks, which kill an average of just eight swimmers each year.

    At the age of 52, actress Vanessa Bell Calloway best known as Princess Imani Izzi in Coming to America was diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), also known as stage 0 breast cancer. 

    Opening up about her experience with breast cancer with Ebony in a personal essay, Vanessa revealed surviving breast cancer changed her perspective on life.

    "I didn’t want to miss life. I decided cancer was not going to ruin me [...] Anytime you go through anything so emotional, you learn a lot. I’m very grateful and blessed. I love my birthdays even more," she wrote in her Breast Cancer Survival Story.

    China becomes the first middle-income country to join the ranks of the world's 25 most-innovative economies, according to the Global Innovation Index (GII) released last Monday.

    'I just want to stay professional. I don't want them to think I'm a fangirl. I'm one of the performers and I'm not just a background dancer, I'm the dancer.'

    Richard Roundtree discovered he was among the small percentage of men diagnosed with a male form of breast cancer back in 1993, after finding a lump while filming a movie in Costa Rica.

    Remaining silent about his diagnosis for five years, the original Shaft decided to go public with his survivor status at a celebrity golf tournament to raise money for a mobile breast cancer diagnostic unit. 

    "I just got up and told everybody that I was a breast cancer survivor," he shared according to "The room was totally silent. I think it dawned on people that men can be affected by this, too."

    After being diagnosed with stage-4 breast cancer at the age of 33, and given only 3 months to live, Bershan Shaw defied the odds and is now a 12-year cancer survivor. 

    "I thought my life was over. I thought I was never going to make it in my career. I didn’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. I saw no tunnel nor light," the Love in the City star shared on her Instagram.

    很多人会这么想:“只要我努力工作,我总会被人注意到的。” 但是这通常不对。如果你想升职,那么当一些责任分到你头上,让你大施拳脚,你一定要让你的上级,你上级的上级知道你到底为公司贡献了什么。
    He was responsible for monitoring how many cupcake aficionados were allowed in the store at one time. Of course Magnolia Bakery isn't exactly complaining. The store proudly displays memorabilia from the show on the walls of their many locations. Today, Magnolia Bakery is known for their banana pudding, but they will always owe their initial success to Carrie Bradshaw and a red velvet cupcake.
    17. 最复杂的障碍。根据Box Office Mojo网站统计,截止到12月7日,今年发行的20部票房最高的影片中,有7部是由女性主导的。与之形成对照的是,20部由女性为主导的影片中,有五部在全球票房领先,而海外票房占据了电影业收入的70%。这看上去可能很糟,但是比近年的数据要好一点。

  9. Calypso Rose

    In 1996, Calypso Rose battled and beat breast cancer. The legendary musician/songwriter renown as the “Mother Of Calypso,” has since continued to bless the world with her talents.

    Earlier this year, the Trinidadian trailblazer made herstory as the 上海市委书记李强:沪苏浙交界处将设立长三角一体化示范区, at the age of 78! Not to mention, she was the first calypso performer to play a full set at the festival. Talk about inspiration!
