Facts About Breast Cancer
What is breast cancer?
Breast cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the breast.
When breast cancer is detected early, and is in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is 100%. Early detection includes doing monthly breast self-exams, and scheduling regular clinical breast exams and mammograms.
Breast cancer can be diagnosed through multiple tests, including a mammogram, ultrasound, MRI and biopsy.
Once a person is determined to have a malignant tumor or the diagnosis of breast cancer, the healthcare team will determine breast cancer staging to communicate how far the disease has progressed.
Types of breast cancer include ductal carcinoma in situ, invasive ductal carcinoma, inflammatory breast cancer, and metastatic breast cancer.
There is a lot of misinformation out there. Make sure you know the facts about breast cancer.

1963 - 2011
Jill Caraballo was an amazing person who put others needs before her own. She was a great mother to her five beautiful children: AJ, Arianna, Michael, Lexi, and Nick. But she was also an amazing wife, aunt, sister, friend, and the list goes on. No one could bake cookies or deserts quite like hers and we would always look forward to the Holidays because we knew she would always be making something amazing for us to eat. In May 2008 Jill was diagnosed with stage IV Breast Cancer with metastasis to the bones. Three years later in 2011 Jill would pass away from cancer. Her life may have ended but her spirit and memories continue to live on through her children and her family.
In Honor of Jill and anyone who is fighting the battle of cancer I have decided that my company Ike 4 Life Productions will be part of Breast Cancer Awarness Month.
