Fultz, a nurse at Geisinger-Lewistown Hospital was 23 when she was initially diagnosed with an Invasive Ductal Carcinoma form of breast cancer. "I always feel like I don't need to worry about hereditary cancer because they have my back".

On Friday, 19 October, the International Breast Cancer day, employees at Mapfre Middlesea and Mapfre MSV Life were encouraged to wear pink clothes to raise awareness about this disease.

"I didn't know it was hereditary, I didn't know much about it", she said.

"I know that God is using me".

To the relief of the entire Lambert family, Trish is now in remission, but the path leading to her remission was a long and grueling one. When it didn't go away in a few weeks, she went for a checkup that led to a biopsy-lumpectomy. After all that, Trish had reconstructive surgery. "He said that it's completely gone and it won't recur".

Using the Polo match as a backdrop to raise funds, Venter said it was the flawless way to combine a love for philanthropy and polo to create an event to serve as a platform to raise awareness for a disease that is most prevalent in women, but also affects a high number of men. "And they actually have a higher mortality rate because it's usually not detected early, because men just assume they don't have [breast cancer]".

Doctors told Ellyn she had stage two breast cancer that had spread into her lymph nodes.

Wednesday evening dozens in pink met at Columbus City Hall to support those battling breast cancer and survivors. "I had my picture taken in a rather eye-catching outfit with Jules Peters, who knows first-hand how important it is that breast cancer receives the funding it deserves, and then our team of staff in the constituency all dressed in pink too, to mark the day".
