Popeye’s Supplements is proud to support CancerCare Manitoba Foundation and help raise funds with our October Pink Campaign. Each year more than 6,000 Manitobans receive a cancer diagnosis and so many people are effected. All funds raised during our October Pink Campaign will be going towards Breast Cancer.
About CancerCare Manitoba Foundation
All funds raised and donated remain in Manitoba. These funds support an internationally-recognized team of health professionals at CancerCare Manitoba who provide outstanding care for patients and their families.
Our mission, in partnership with our donors, is to support CancerCare’s strategic priorities. Your generosity enables the Foundation to maximize the funds provided to CancerCare Manitoba each year. Donor contributions help bridge the gap of initiatives and programs not eligible for government funding or where financial resources are not available, including prevention, early detection, clinical trials and leading-edge research and treatment. This support to CancerCare Manitoba profoundly impacts patient outcomes.
CancerCare Manitoba is our provincially mandated agency for cancer and blood disorders. We share its bold vision, “A world free of cancer” and the goal that no life is cut short by cancer — a complex set of more than 200 diseases.
Breast cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed cancers in Manitoba women. Screening mammograms can find breast cancer early, when there may be more treatment options and a better chance of a cure.
Every year 900 Manitoban women are diagnosed with breast cancer and 200 will die from the disease.
Only 10% of women diagnosed with breast cancer have a family history of breast cancer.
BreastCheck is a program that checks Manitoba women ages 50 and over for early signs of breast cancer. Regular screening mammograms are the best way to find breast cancer early. When found early, there may be more treatment options and better chance of a cure.
Most women age 50 to 74 should have a screening mammogram every 2 years. Trans men and women may also need regular mammograms.
