Men also are susceptible to
breast cancer, with about 1,400
new cases reported annually.
October is Breast Cancer
Awareness month. The effects of
breast cancer cause difficult sit
uations for those in the commu
nity, but support and education
are the best combatants of breast
cancer, Dettwyler said.
Gale G. Hannigan, director
of informatics for medical edu
cation at the Texas A&M
College of Medicine and the
Medical Sciences Library, had
breast cancer and is at high risk
for recurrence. She promotes
awareness through her work as a
medical librarian and wrote an
article, “Librarian as Patient: A
View from the Other Side,” pub
lished in the Journal of the
American Medical Informatics.
“As a medical librarian, 1 had
the confidence and skill to ask
and help answer (»estions”
Hannigan said. “Even though I
am experienced in finding med
ical information, 1 had to build a
personal knowledge base and
incorporate one fact at a time.
“Because of the way technol
ogy has changed, resources are
readily available for students, so
if you, or someone you care
about, is diagnosed with breast
cancer, one of the most impor
tant things you can do is find and
use good, current information.”
Dettwyler and Hannigan both
express the importance of being
educated about breast cancer.
The five-year mark is exciting to
reach, but cancer frequently
recurs, they said. Complications
may hinder the five-year mark,
even with early detection. The
American Cancer Society rec
ommends that both men and
women become educated about
breast cancer.
Geoff Spahr, a senior market
ing major, spoke about his expe
rience with his mom, Mary Jo
Spahr, and her battle with breast
cancer. She died a year before
Spahr began school at A&M.
“My mom was diagnosed in
1994 with breast cancer,” Spahr
said. “They found it early so ini
tially we tried not to worry too
much. But complications arose
and my mom died in 1996. Any
kind of cancer is scary, so it’s
important to be educated.”
Other students in the A&M
community have been affected
by breast cancer.
Sharon Derrick, a graduate
student at A&M currently work
ing toward a doctorate in physical
anthropology, was diagnosed with
breast cancer in November 1999.
“Initially, after I was diag
nosed, it turned everything
upside down for a few weeks,”
Derrick said. “But then my fam
ily and 1 got in a routine with
things. You have to enjoy life,
especially in these situations. A
breast cancer diagnosis is not a
death sentence.
“Don’t be afraid of a diagno
sis and not go to the doctor. It is
not disfiguring either, so don't
be afraid to go see your doctor if
you find anything unusual.”
Derrick. Dettwyler and
Hannigan all said that a positive
attitude and early diagnosis are
very important in dealing with
breast cancer.
“It is important for young
women to begin now with a
good diet, with daily exercise,”
Derrick said. "Start going to the
doctor for yearly check-ups, and
do your monthly self-breast
exam. Always ask about unusual
things — doctors aren't going to
think you are weird.”
A.P. Beutel Health Center is
promoting breast health aware
ness this month to help educate
students about the risk and the
symptoms of breast cancer.
Beutel will sponsor Breast
Health Awareness information
tables at the Memorial Student
Center and in die Commons
