    Everything ashamed to be pink nowadays is to remind those who have breast cancer awareness especially now during though the month of October. Breast Cancer Awareness Month let's talk about those doctor caramel and director of breast imaging at Roswell Park Cancer Institute. Doctor good morning thank you for joining us. Good morning thank you for having me here. Are you pleased about this everything. Paint that just seems to be sweeping the nation even an excuse me. Even pumpkins sold in supermarkets are panicked at a local car dealer as the front of his business you have to be pleased although I think it wonder. You know it reminds us that we have come a long way but we have a long way to go. It reminds women scheduled their mammograms it reminds me on everyone to support that organization. Wait on the are dedicated to. and to try to find a cure it is indeed I think it's a wonderful Doctor but until there's so many misconceptions. Out there about when someone should begin screening for mammograms and how often they should be getting them to. Yeah in and benefited can't convert the different organization. Have made a recommendation went on but when you really look at that they got. The marquis is the only Catholic has been proven him randomized control trial would have considered to be the gold standard can lower your risk. Of dying from breast cancer. And that when you look at the study that I have done over and over every time the country at birth can come about. On that in the dark. Doing colonoscopy is an 848. And most of the recommending organizations including the American Cancer Society. Recommend annual tomography beginning at age forty. Doctor finding a cure you mentioned this a minute ago. Really are we even close or is early detection still the best. Early detection it. Still what have our on main tools in risk of to care. And you look on at the data out stand up on nine do you stop on mortality rate from breast cancer has decreased by 30%. And part of that is due to the market but part of it is also due to improvement in treatment. On chemotherapy hormone hormonal therapy and we have made it. Delighted toward a run in improving that on the art are cure rate. We haven't quite gotten your right to but there have been great achievement over the past I'm decades. Now we also know that there are learning that Roswell is opening up my Griffey screening. To all women now not just those who have committed with the cancer diagnosis or have suspicion of cancers are ranked. That in Iraq you know this is what we do act star and cancer detection diagnosis and treatment. And that that is it part of our mission Q on Q in you've got cancer screening. And so we wanted to do it to a higher capabilities that we don't we're not quite ready. That and you don't mean I think you heard about our new chemical don't mean that comment back on what will open hopefully and then on. 2000. Fifteen and that allowed to truly expand our that you targeted but we wanted to get started sooner. So we've extended our hours so that we can actually offer screening tomography to women in the community not to let me back and to diagnose it. Doctor you had mentioned age forty as the age when women should really get moving November mammograms but. What about women with a family history of breast cancer should they do this earlier. Yes there are some women with a strong family history of breath and especially women who have a feeling that you're Brett cantor and the women are diagnosed at a young age. upon whom that may be back for them to start screening mammogram earlier but this should be done in consultation with your position. We out having hybrid screening we have a hybrid on the op program here. I'm not rules but on the we evaluate women that I'm helping them without their actual red and determining. Whether they are candidate screening at a younger age of forty. Doctor we learned a lot from noon we're very grateful to be joining us thanks. Thank you so much of my pleasure. Doctor Malayan. Amarillo in my director of breast imaging at Roswell Park Cancer Institute.

Our next guest on the WB and live line as a local mom her name is -- chilled me she had. Rachel and her husband of three children. And send them to DePaul Roman Catholic school in -- in the Hamlet of spring -- it's one of those schools the diocese announced would be closed. After this year Rachel did you have any inkling that this was coming were you worried about it. I actually wasn't really worried about it I assume that this school would stay open because it has been around for so long. I actually went to grammar schools are my top. So was a bit of a surprise also because of where we live where in Holland in their kids that come from strikers now. I'll over the plate and though there aren't that many Catholic schools in the area that we have an option of going to -- Voicing new attended the school Rachel and now your kids to they must have been tears yesterday. Yes it was -- pretty emotional I was actually -- -- when it happened I was waiting for the 330 press conference that was advertised. However people in my office were saying hey this -- to close the schools -- in Italy 130 in the afternoon and although it. News blogs where posting up all over Twitter and FaceBook though. We found out much earlier than we thought we were going to tell -- that what the surprise and I spoke with a few of the parents afterwards that. We're at this school and they're just absolutely devastated devastated. How did your three children react to this once they realized what was happening. Well my daughter Alison she's pretty easygoing and those she just take that to come she's ready to go where you have ago. My youngest one nephew he thought his school closed. Yesterday and he was done with school for the year. And that my oldest one laughter -- he's pretty up that he made them really different that's -- them and then. He just he's gonna take everything -- it -- but stayed there a little bit worried about what's gonna happen next. So you say you live in -- where will you go next year. We're planning on going through immaculate conception in East Aurora. -- -- That's that's the problem I believe that there are with a lot of the Catholic schools closing especially so many in the top -- We rely on our talent for boxing and we have to be within a fifteen mile radius or at least one child does so it doesn't give you very many options of where you come out. -- we understand a question there had been sent out to many parents to fill out. Before of this decision was made did you get one of those question -- to fill out. I'm -- -- what kinds of questions were on medalist. Our question who are. They range from all all over is. Why you -- Catholic education if you were a product of Catholic education and they give you options it's because you don't like public school because you went to Catholic school because you're Catholic just. They give you -- multiple choice answers. Which were pretty specific they -- How important greens basically Q how important hot lunch program and how important -- -- to work. And then you had to be that Aaron I was ranges. And how important size class slot in before and after school programs. There was it was pretty. Specific in what they were asking. So I thought that that would have been a good gauge. I'm not sure. How much of that they went by because actually pretty surprised at the other schools that closed I have friend the other schools are closed in several. I'm of the school that closed I do know people and they were also very surprised. Talk about what was appealing for you at saint Vincent's that you worry might not be there. And the next school year. Well. I will have to say that we did just -- we did transfer there we did go to immaculate conception before that. We alleys we're gonna choose Catholic education for our children. But with me after my -- school I finally went back to work full time and the big part of it for me bringing on the pavement and not only because we went there. Is because they didn't have that before and after school program which is very critical for -- the week my husband and I work. That now. We do have other options with my kids getting a little bit older like they can go to the Boys and Girls Club album before I didn't have that though. I believe would be able to make a smooth transition but that's also if we can't get into another school I have spoke with. People at other schools that I know that are open and they have been inundated with phone -- just. Tons of people calling wondering if they can get their kids -- and what do they have to do and what paperwork today have to fill out. And these schools are not allowed to transfer students they can't take registration until there open house which is that their last week of January. If what -- class size are you worried that now. With the closing of the schools that some class sizes may be pretty large. Well I don't believe that it it all depends on the capacity of what the school can hold. I think there if they can hold up to thirty kids per class the immaculate I know that the -- -- wanted to -- public 400 plus students for school. However if they don't have the capacity to hold that I don't know how that was even gonna be an option. A much schools are planning on putting on -- so I think that our class -- would never go more than 28 or thirty students which is. Probably more than. The traditional Catholic school class would be. But I don't think that would be much -- a problem I think the problem is going to be is these kids from the south pound. Be able to get in another school because of capacity or because of distance that they are from that -- have to rely on their own transportation. Richard good to talk with the U good luck next year thanks for joining us. Thank you Rachel the Oceanic. The racial and her husband have a three children and send them to -- Roman Catholic school in -- which is one of the Catholic schools that's closing.
