Christina is a long-time supporter of Susan G. Komen for the Cure, having championed the need for early detection through a number of initiatives over the years. As the daughter of a breast cancer survivor, she has been active in encouraging people to remain vigilant about breast cancer screening. We were comforted to hear that Christina's cancer was discovered early and her prognosis is good.

Yet her diagnosis, at age 36, is a poignant reminder that breast cancer can strike at any age, and therefore it is critically important to be aware of your breast health, since we know early detection of breast cancer greatly improves a person's odds of beating the disease.

Women should understand their personal risks of the disease and the benefits of lifestyle choices in terms of reducing the risk of breast cancer. Women can decrease their risk of developing breast cancer by avoiding excessive weight gain, limiting alcohol consumption and getting regular exercise. Routine mammography for women age 40 and over has also been shown to improve breast cancer survival.

Breast cancer remains a common problem, but with a combination of early detection and effective treatment, the vast majority of women will go on to lead a long and healthy life. We trust this will be the case with Christina.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure(R) recommends that you:

-- Talk to your provider about your personal risk of breast cancer

Get screened

-- Ask your doctor which screening tests are right for you if you ar
