In Standing with solidarity together with the entire human populace towards breast cancer awareness this Month, our ladies at JL Properties came to work bedazzled in Ribbbon Pink Shirts. The pink color and ribbon is a universal symbol of breast cancer, illustrating the cause, raising awareness and bringing together women in solidarity.
“Patients are experiencing better outcomes as a result of early campaign and diagnosis, state-of-the-art treatment options, and less extensive surgery,” says Dr. Catherine Tuite. As the City’s Favorite Developer, embarking on such heigthened campaing is a priority that of the disease has unquestionably led to a greater number of women being screened for breast cancer, as early detection leads to early prevention.
These awareness provide an opportunity to help educate the public on the health impact of breast cancer, the importance of taking personal responsibility for health, and the new research studies that ultimately affect clinical practice.
Breast self-exam, or regularly examining your breasts on your own, can be an important way to find a breast cancer early, when it’s more likely to be treated successfully. Just in case a fellow female hasn’t done hers, kindly encourage her to do so. Click here for some self examination tips.
The first mention of cancer of any kind was a case of breast cancer documented in Egypt around 1600 BC. The Edwin Smith Papyrus, an ancient text found in 1860 in an Egyptian tomb, described eight cases of tumors or ulcers of the breast. The first doctors attempting to treat breast cancer wrote of the mysterious disease: “There is no treatment!”
“The wandering womb”
Cases of breast cancer in ancient times were often attributed to what Hippocrates called “the wandering womb.” This particular explanation hinged on the belief that a woman’s uterus could move throughout the body leaving health problems of every kind in its wake.
The first successful Treatment
French surgeon Jean Louis Petit and later Scottish surgeon Benjamin Bell were the first to surgically remove lymph nodes, breast tissue, and chest muscle as a treatment for the disease. This method was the first successful treatment of breast cancer.
Better surgery, better outcomes
By the 1970s, researchers began to develop the lumpectomy, a less invasive surgical option that removes only the cancerous tumor and any surrounding tissue affected by the tumor. By 1985, research found that a lumpectomy followed by radiation treatment gave women a chance of survival equal to the considerably more invasive mastectomy.
Treatments that failed
In the 1980s and 1990s, thousands of women who had undergone standard breast cancer treatment also received high-dose bone marrow transplants, with the hope that this would improve their long-term survival rates. Unfortunately, the treatment proved disastrous after 15 to 20 percent of the women died due to the treatment.
What you can do now?
As research continues to improve, there are steps that every person can take to prevent breast cancer or any kind of cancer: eat a healthy diet, get regular exercise, keep your weight down, and avoid alcohol whenever possible.

On this wonderful day, we as the City’s Favorite Developer honors mothers of family, motherhood, maternal bonds and the influence of mothers in the society. We are most grateful to all Mothers.
The present day Celebration of Mother’s day begun in the year 1908 when Anna Jarvis organized a memorial for her mohter, Ann Javis, a peace activist. For several years, she held an annual Mother’s Day meeting in Boston. However, West Virginia activist Anna Jarvis is credited with creating the holiday that is celebrated today.In 1908, Jarvis campaigned for a national observance of the holiday in honor of her mother, who was a community health advocate. Her mom had organized several Mother’s Day Work Clubs that addressed child rearing and public health issues, and Jarvis wanted to commemorate her and the work of all mothers.
However, Jarvis later became disillusioned by how floral and greeting card companies commercialized the holiday and said she regretted starting it.
It became an official US holiday in 1914 when President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed the second Sunday in May as a day of “public expression of our love and reverence for the mothers of our country.”
As we celebrate Worker’s Day, we want to take into retrospect of how Worker’s Day came about. Enjoy reading!
In the late nineteenth century, the working class was in constant struggle to gain the 8-hour work day. Working conditions were severe and it was quite common to work 10 to 16 hour days in unsafe conditions. Death and injury were commonplace at many work places and inspired such books as Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle and Jack London’s The Iron Heel. As early as the 1860’s, working people agitated to shorten the workday without a cut in pay, but it wasn’t until the late 1880’s that organized labor was able to garner enough strength to declare the 8-hour workday. This proclamation was without consent of employers, yet demanded by many of the working class.
At this time, socialism was a new and attractive idea to working people, many of whom were drawn to its ideology of working class control over the production and distribution of all goods and services. Workers had seen first-hand that Capitalism benefited only their bosses, trading workers’ lives for profit. Thousands of men, women and children were dying needlessly every year in the workplace, with life expectancy as low as their early twenties in some industries, and little hope but death of rising out of their destitution.
The celebration commemorates the police firing on and killing of dozens of workers who were staging a demonstration for the institution of the eight-hour workday. The Haymarket Square Riots, as it is called, occurred in Chicago on May 4, 1886. The gunfire was started by an unknown person who threw a dynamite bomb into the crowd.
In Ghana, the celebration is an seen as an appreciation of the contribution of workers to national development. A parade is held where the various labour unions under the Trade Union Congress (TUC) march à la the military. In Ghana, the celebration is without the political undertones that may be experienced in other countries. Although, trade unions are opposed by right-wing parties, only the government of Prime Minister Dr Busia banned it.
