Rahim Hassanally Explains Improvements in Cancer Screenings through Automated Breast Ultrasound Systems

Professional Rahim Hassanally frequently supports efforts to raise breast cancer awareness, and below shares how new automated cancer screenings help tackle the disease earlier.

Rahim Hassanally was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and attended Southern Methodist University, earning a degree in Political Science and English. Today, he’s a savvy businessman in the automotive industry who is passionate about breast cancer awareness.

“Breast cancer is a devastating disease that doesn’t discriminate based on age, and it leaves women and families feeling hopeless too often,” says Rahim Hassanally. “However, thanks to breakthroughs in cancer research and screenings––like recent advancements in automated breast ultrasound systems––doctors can restore their hope.”

In 2016 alone, the American Cancer Society registered over 245,000 new breast cancer patients in the country. The rising prevalence of the disease has increased demand for automated breast ultrasound systems (ABUS). This new technology replaces typical hand-held ultrasounds for breast screenings with unique benefits.

At the core of ABUS are high-frequency sound waves, but these devices also receive 3-D volumetric images. The transducer used in automated breast ultrasound systems is able to conduct an automatic scan of the targeted areas, which nearly eliminates operator dependency and degrees of human error. Additionally, Rahim Hassanally tells us, the new examination technique can perform cancer screenings much faster than traditional ultrasounds.

“Though these cancer screening systems are relatively new, they’ve already made a tremendous impact on how fast and thorough ultrasounds return critical data, allowing doctors and physicians to understand and address cancer with more precision and speed,” says Rahim Hassanally. “And instead of taking picture after picture to obtain accurate readings of patients’ tissue, newer devices within the last couple of years are able to create 3D-images that provide much more insightful data.”

The FDA approved the first ever automated breast ultrasound system in 2012, which was created by GE/U-Systems for enhanced screenings. Earlier models were able to capture many 2D images to relay back to doctors, about 2000 images on average, but it consumed a lot of time. Newer models rely on an advanced computer-aided detection system that runs on deep learning algorithms. The result is either single imaging that can highlight specific parts for enhanced observation or else a complete and accurate 3D model.

“We are gaining the power to detect breast cancer more thoroughly and quickly than ever before,” says Rahim Hassanally. “And now we’ve developed technology that uses full-film digital mammography to detect cancer down to the densest tissues, empowering medical professionals everywhere to view patients’ conditions with incredible precision.”

Rahim Hassanally to offer free advice to new generation of aspiring young entrepreneurs

Entrepreneur and philanthropist Rahim Hassanally to give free advice to a new generation of business-minded young adults in the Dallas-Fort Worth Area.

Local businessman Rahim Hassanally has recently announced plans to help support business-minded young adults in the area. By offering free tips and advice to those looking to follow in his footsteps as an entrepreneur, Hassanally hopes to inspire a new generation of business leaders across the region.

“Amid uncertain economic times exacerbated by the ongoing global health crisis, there’s never been a better time to foster an entrepreneurial spirit in a new generation of business-minded young men and women,” suggests Rahim Hassanally, speaking from his home in Dallas, Texas. Hassanally will, he says, look to offer a series of tips plus further help and advice designed to assist in catapulting local young adults toward a future as successful entrepreneurs.

Entrepreneur Rahim Hassanally has more than two decades of experience as an industry leader in retail sales. Originally destined for a career in hospitality, he quickly sought a change of both pace and direction. “Entering the hotel business would’ve been straightforward for me,” explains Hassanally, whose family has long been established in the hospitality industry, “but I figured out at a very young age that it just wasn’t for me personally.”

As such, Rahim Hassanally promptly embarked on a work-study program offered by his local high school. It was here, Hassanally says, that his journey as an entrepreneur first began. “The rest, as they say,” he jokes, “is history.”

Of course, Rahim Hassanally’s route to success as a business leader is far from being consigned to history, and will likely form the basis of his advice to a new generation of aspiring young entrepreneurs.

Outside of business, Rahim Hassanally is a keen philanthropist and an outspoken advocate for cancer awareness. Rahim Hassanally has previously spoken in detail about the latest cancer drugs showing promise in early trials, the work of local and national cancer charities and support organizations, the value of early cancer detection, and more.

Earlier this year, Rahim Hassanally marked World Cancer Day 2020 and shared the latest news from a number of leading cancer charities. Hassanally is also a frequent supporter of local homeless shelters and, elsewhere, has generously donated to numerous disaster relief efforts around the world in recent years.

Further to his cancer awareness advocacy and other charitable efforts, Rahim Hassanally says he’s similarly passionate about promoting entrepreneurship. “From plenty of hard graft to sheer business-mindedness, it’s not necessarily something that can be taught,” suggests Hassanally, wrapping up, “but rather something which can be inspired and nurtured, particularly within those with the correct drive and mindset.”

Rahim Hassanally Continues to Champion Value of Breast Cancer Awareness Across Solano County

Businessman Rahim Hassanally details the importance of continued awareness surrounding breast cancer locally, nationally, and internationally.

A long-standing advocate for the cause, Rahim Hassanally has spoken at length recently on the topic of breast cancer awareness and, earlier in 2020, marked the growing importance of World Cancer Day, now held each year on February 4 around the world. An entrepreneur from Solano County, California, the businessman remains at the forefront of breast cancer awareness locally as he continues to stress the crucial nature of the matter in the region and, indeed, throughout the Golden State and elsewhere across the U.S.

“With over 30,000 new cases expected to be diagnosed this year in California alone, breast cancer is today by far the most common form of cancer in the state, with many originating here in Solano County in particular,” explains Rahim Hassanally, a successful businessman and entrepreneur based in the region.

Such is Rahim Hassanally‘s commitment to supporting increased awareness of breast cancer in Solano County that the entrepreneur and businessman has raised many thousands of dollars for local good causes in the field.

One such fundraising effort saw businessman Rahim Hassanally and his team raise an incredible $10,000 for the Sacramento Valley chapter of Susan G. Komen, the leading breast cancer charity both in California and the United States. The chapter has, to date, contributed upwards of $20 million to breast cancer organizations in the region, according to Rahim Hassanally.

“From grants afforded to local community organizations and hospitals to facilitate improved breast health education, to funding for cancer screening and treatment programs for medically underserved women in the community, raising money—and awareness—for charities such as Susan G. Komen is vital,” Hassanally suggests.

The story of Rahim Hassanally and his team’s donation was covered at the time by local family-owned media outlet McNaughton Newspapers, the name behind the Daily Republic, among a variety of further community-driven publications popular in and around Solano County.

“It’s now widely accepted that, both in the U.S. and internationally, cancer rates across the board can be reduced through the promotion of greater awareness of the disease,” says entrepreneur and cancer awareness advocate Hassanally of his continued efforts to raise the profile of the cause. From the promotion of awareness of both common and more rare cancers to studying trends and demographics tied to the disease, every little helps, according to Rahim Hassanally.

“It’s with this in mind that I continue to fight for the cause, and to raise awareness of breast cancer, in particular, as well as other forms of the disease,” adds the Solano County-based entrepreneur.

From Solano County, California, to the homes and businesses of others across the nation, Rahim Hassanally says it’s vital that as many people as possible make efforts, as he does, to champion the value of cancer awareness in the community. “In the ongoing fight against the disease, we’re all able,” adds Hassanally, wrapping up, “to encourage greater cancer awareness, and, I believe, it’s our duty to do so whenever and wherever possible, and to the absolute best of our individual abilities, so that we may one day put an end to all forms of cancer once and for all.”

Rahim Hassanally offers a behind the scenes look at NAMAD

NAMAD member Rahim Hassanally provides a closer look at the work of the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers.

 

Committed to increasing opportunities for ethnic minorities within America’s ever-growing automotive industry, the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization based in the Washington, D.C. area. A ten-year NAMAD member, Rahim Hassanally offers a closer behind the scenes look at the work of the vital U.S. automotive industry organization.

 

The National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers was founded in 1980. Led by African Americans, Latinos, and Asian/Pacific Islanders, the association—best known simply as NAMAD—is based in the Prince George’s County community of Lanham, Maryland.

 

Rahim Hassanally begins by sharing NAMAD’s mission statement. “NAMAD is committed to increasing opportunities for ethnic minorities in all aspects of the automotive industry,” he explains. “NAMAD also seeks to ensure the presence of a meaningful, representative number of minority entrepreneurs and employees in the retail sales, supplier and service sectors, and the manufacturing ranks,” Hassanally reveals. 

 

The National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers, he goes on to explain, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, tax-exempt organization. For 40 years, NAMAD has actively and passionately represented ethnic minority automobile dealers in the United States, according to Hassanally. “This,” he says, “is vital, as out of a total of more than 19,000 new automobile dealerships in the U.S., only around five percent are owned by ethnic minorities.”

 

NAMAD is committed, the organization says, to working closely with domestic and international nameplate manufacturers to achieve sound, win/win business arrangements designed to create reciprocal trading partnerships. “In recent years, many astute automobile manufacturers have joined forces with NAMAD,” adds Hassanally, “in order to work together to advance efforts to promote equal opportunities for all.” 

 

These partnerships have not only uncovered new markets, new ideas, and new talent, according to Rahim Hassanally, but also new capital – much to the benefit of automobile manufacturers, automotive industry entrepreneurs, and consumers alike.

 

Himself an automotive industry entrepreneur, Rahim Hassanally has previously shared an insightful look back at the history of the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers. 

 

“Collaborating with policy-makers and domestic and international manufacturers, NAMAD has been dedicated to establishing business protocols that are equitable, meaningful, and sustainable for America’s minority automotive industry sector since 1980,” he said at the time.

 

“While much work still remains to drive diversity and inclusion higher across the automotive industry in America today,” he adds, wrapping up, “NAMAD, now four decades on, continues to take a vital role in leading the process.”

Rahim Hassanally remains committed to cancer awareness advocacy mission

California-based entrepreneur and philanthropist Rahim Hassanally remains as committed as ever to his cancer awareness advocacy efforts.

 

Having recently spoken at length about cancer awareness initiatives such as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and new cancer drugs showing promise in early trials, California-based entrepreneur and philanthropist Rahim Hassanally shows no sign of slowing down on his mission to promote cancer awareness, and to support life-saving research into the disease. 

 

“It’s vital that we continue to promote cancer awareness,” says Hassanally, speaking from his office in Solano County, California, “and support ongoing research into fighting and beating the disease.” 

 

Rahim Hassanally has long been an outspoken advocate for cancer awareness. Awareness, he says, and measures to prevent cancer, are the first line of defense in battling many forms of the illness. “Combined with vital research into the disease, preventative steps and increased cancer awareness are central to saving lives and eventually beating cancer once and for all,” says entrepreneur and philanthropist Hassanally.

 

Further to raising awareness and promoting health and wellness in the fight against cancer, Solano County-based Hassanally has raised thousands of dollars for cancer charities, including Susan G. Komen, the largest breast cancer organization in the United States. 

 

One fundraising effort, in particular, saw Rahim Hassanally help to raise $10,000 for the charity’s Sacramento chapter, Susan G. Komen Northern & Central California. The chapter, he revealed at the time, has now contributed more than $20 million to breast cancer charities in the region.

 

Covered by McNaughton Newspapers, Inc., a local family-owned media company which produces a number of community-driven publications, news of the impressive fundraising total also represented an ideal opportunity for Hassanally to further raise awareness of the disease in communities across Northern California 

 

Hassanally is a particular advocate for breast cancer awareness, although the entrepreneur and philanthropist has also been an outspoken advocate for research and awareness surrounding a broad range of cancers. 

 

From breast cancer, cervical cancer, and ovarian cancer to prostate and testicular cancer, and all manner of childhood cancers and forms of leukemia, Rahim Hassanally will not, he says, be satisfied until a cure for cancer across the board is found. 

 

“In light of new cancer drugs such as tucatinib and trastuzumab deruxtecan showing promise in breast cancer trials, it’s as important as ever,” adds Hassanally, wrapping up, “that we continue to invest in revolutionary research if we’re to beat the disease once and for all.”

Rahim Hassanally provides three tips for aspiring entrepreneurs

California-based entrepreneur and philanthropist Rahim Hassanally offers a trio of tips to aspiring entrepreneurs in today’s business landscape.

 

A successful entrepreneur born and raised in Texas and now based in California, Rahim Hassanally considers his experiences following more than 20 years in business to provide three tips for aspiring entrepreneurs in a brand new decade. 

 

“In today’s modern business landscape, I’d stress the importance of starting by finding the correct niche,” suggests Hassanally. The correct niche, he says of his first tip, should be neither too broad nor too specific. “Also consider,” adds the expert, “whether it’ll be possible to remarket to existing customers in the future, and avoid any potential short-term niches from the outset.” 

 

Next, says Hassanally, focus on profit, not on revenue. “Many aspiring entrepreneurs are obsessed with revenue,” he suggests, “but, broadly speaking, profit is much more important.” 

 

Profit, Rahim Hassanally says, often demonstrates sustainability. “Simple revenue,” he adds, “not so much.” 

 

Where an aspiring entrepreneur is unsure, Hassanally advises turning to a profit margin calculator in order to help determine the viability of a potential business in earning a suitable level of profit. 

 

Third among Rahim Hassanally’s tips is to be—and to remain—highly driven. “Focus on something you’re passionate about, and you’ll remain driven,” says Hassanally. A real level of passion and drive, the expert believes, puts an aspiring entrepreneur in the best possible position to run their business, and to run it better than anyone else. “Match your business to your exact skills, personality, and own experiences, too,” he suggests, “and you’ll be off to a truly great start.”

 

Rahim Hassanally has previously spoken at length about what it takes to succeed as an entrepreneur. “My family has a strong background in the hospitality industry,” said the entrepreneur and philanthropist last year, “but I knew at a very young age that this simply wasn’t for me.”

 

Instead, at the age of 16, Hassanally quickly made a name for himself in the sales field, subsequently turning down an invitation to attend a prestigious law school, and establishing and building up his own highly successful automotive sales business in his 20s.  

 

Briefly revisiting the last of his three tips for aspiring entrepreneurs, Rahim Hassanally credits passion and drive for much of his own success. “I’ve always been extremely driven,” adds the entrepreneur and philanthropist, wrapping up, “and, even today, I won’t give up until I’ve achieved my goal once I’ve set my mind to something.”

Rahim Hassanally Highlights New Breast Cancer Drugs Showing Promise in Early Trials

Cancer awareness advocate and entrepreneur Rahim Hassanally shines a spotlight on two new drugs showing promise in early breast cancer trials.

 

Those diagnosed with advanced HER2-positive breast cancer may soon have new treatment options available to them following news that two experimental drugs have performed well in clinical testing. An advocate for cancer awareness, California-based entrepreneur Rahim Hassanally considers the results of these trials and what this may mean for those living with HER2-positive breast cancer. 

 

Of those diagnosed with breast cancer, as many as 20 percent will specifically exhibit cells positive for HER2—or human epidermal growth factor receptor 2, which promotes the growth of cancer cells—according to Hassanally, an entrepreneur and cancer awareness advocate originally from Texas and now based in California. “This means that as many as one-fifth of those diagnosed with the disease can potentially be treated with HER2 protein-targeting drugs,” he explains. 

 

News, then, of two new HER2 protein-targeting cancer drugs is excellent, Hassanally says, and will bring renewed hope, particularly to those who have experienced resistance to existing treatments for HER2-positive breast cancer, such as the drug marketed as Herceptin. “In combination with chemotherapy, around 80 percent of individuals treated with HER2-positive drugs live for a decade or more, with the majority of those showing no signs of their existing cancer after ten years,” explains Rahim. 

 

For the remaining 20 percent, however, news of studies into novel therapies trastuzumab deruxtecan and tucatinib showing promise in early trials provides a new light at the end of the tunnel. “The news was presented earlier this month,” Hassanally reveals, “at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.” 

 

While trastuzumab deruxtecan is an example of a so-called antibody-drug-conjugate treatment, tucatinib directly targets HER2-positive cells. “In this instance, trastuzumab deruxtecan prevents DNA replication and aims to stop cancer cells from effectively diving,” says Hassanally, “while tucatinib directly targets HER2-positive cells in advanced breast cancer patients, including those where the disease has spread, specifically to the brain.” 

 

Both drugs, according to Rahim Hassanally, show great promise in the fight against breast cancer. “In light of new cancer drugs such as trastuzumab deruxtecan and tucatinib showing promise, it’s as important as ever,” he adds, wrapping up, “that we continue to invest in revolutionary cancer research if we’re to beat the disease once and for all.” 

 

Based in Fairfield, California, Rahim Hassanally is a graduate of Southern Methodist University, a private Methodist research university in University Park, Texas. Born and raised in Texas before relocating to the so-called Golden State to pursue his entrepreneurial endeavors, Hassanally is a keen advocate for cancer awareness, particularly surrounding the importance of breast cancer screening and early detection.

Rahim Hassanally Looks Toward Hotly Anticipated New Motors For 2020

Automotive industry veteran and car expert Rahim Hassanally looks at what’s in store for the U.S. vehicle market in 2020.

 

According to automotive industry veteran and car expert Rahim Hassanally, 2020 signals the arrival of a wealth of all-new cars, trucks, and SUVs ranging from the 2020 Acura Type S and 2020 Bentley Continental GT Convertible to brand new models from Volkswagen and Volvo, including the 2020 Passat and 2020 V60 Cross Country, plus many more. While several of these vehicles have already hit the streets well ahead of New Year, Hassanally takes a closer look at some of the 45 or more new models on offer for the 2020 model year.

 

“Going into next year, we’ll see the arrival of new 2020 Cadillac CT4, CT5, and XT6 models,” explains automotive industry entrepreneur and car expert Hassanally, “as well as the 2020 Buick Encore GX, 2020 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, 2020 GMC Sierra HD, and Lincoln’s 2020 Aviator and 2020 Corsair, plus dozens of other all-new vehicles from manufacturers across the board.”

 

Taking a closer look at the 2020 Lincoln Corsair, Hassanally explains that the all-new compact luxury SUV, which, he suggests, is attractively styled, promises the choice of a turbo 2.0-liter or 2.3-liter 4-cylinder engine at launch. “With no hybrid model yet available, it’s expected that pricier, well-specified launch vehicles could still top $60,000,” reveals the expert. “The all-new 2020 Lincoln Corsair,” he adds, “replaces the existing and outgoing Lincoln MKC.”

 

Other new models coming in the next 12 months include a fresh BMW 7 Series, new BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe, two new models from Ford, three from Hyundai, and five from Mercedes-Benz, such as the 2020 Mercedes-Benz EQC and 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLS. The New Year also marks the arrival of the hotly anticipated all-new 2020 Land Rover Defender. 

 

Supercar manufacturers such as Porsche, Ferrari, and McLaren have also unveiled new models for 2020, according to Rahim Hassanally. “These include,” he adds, wrapping up, “Ferrari’s brand new F8 Tributo, and McLaren’s new 2020 GT – both of which I cannot wait to see in the metal.”

 

Rahim Hassanally is a Governor of California appointed Department of Motor Vehicles New Motor Vehicle Board member, a member of the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers, and a board member of the American International Automobile Dealers Association. Texas native Hassanally’s professional accolades include making the Automotive News ‘Top 40 Under 40’ list and receiving recognition as the 18th annual Urban Wheel Awards ‘Urban Dealer of the Year.’

Rahim Hassanally Highlights Current Cancer Awareness Initiatives

Cancer awareness advocate Rahim Hassanally highlights this month’s ongoing awareness initiatives

With November marking Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month and Lung Cancer Awareness Month in the United States, entrepreneur and cancer awareness advocate Rahim Hassanally takes a closer look at the currently ongoing initiatives led by the Lung Cancer Foundation of America and the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research.

“November in the U.S. marks both Lung Cancer Awareness Month and Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month,” explains Hassanally, a successful entrepreneur, philanthropist, and cancer awareness advocate based in California.

Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month celebrates survivors of the disease and honors loved ones who have fought and lost their lives to pancreatic cancer. “It’s also a unique opportunity to raise awareness,” says Rahim Hassanally, “and to educate the public, raise money for research, and assure patients that the fight against pancreatic cancer is ongoing.”

The initiative is led by the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, which strives to guide and embrace pancreatic cancer patients, support family members, and fund the foremost cutting-edge research into yielding results and turning the tide on the disease.

“Also marked in November each year is Lung Cancer Awareness Month,” Hassanally continues. Organized and led by the Lung Cancer Foundation of America, Lung Cancer Awareness Month, according to the entrepreneur and cancer awareness advocate, represents an opportunity to honor personal lung cancer journeys, pay tribute to loved ones, and, again, to raise funds and awareness for lung cancer research.

“Every cent earned on behalf of the Lung Cancer Foundation of America is donated to lung cancer research,” reveals Hassanally, “and this month is the perfect time to set about raising awareness and funds for the organization.”

Rahim Hassanally has also previously spoken out in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, held each year during the month of October.

Hassanally is a particular advocate for breast cancer awareness and has raised in excess of $10,000 for local breast cancer charities. “My colleagues and I successfully raised over $10,000 for the Sacramento Valley chapter of leading breast cancer charity Susan G. Komen,” he reveals, “the story behind which was covered at the time by Solano County’s Daily Republic.”

The entrepreneur and philanthropist is also a supporter of a number of other local, national, and international charities and good causes, and has further generously donated to a wide range of aid programs and disaster relief efforts both at home and overseas.

Rahim Hassanally Revisits Support for Those Affected by Devastating Local Wildfires

Local entrepreneur Rahim Hassanally looks back on his support for those affected by the devastating 2018 California wildfires.

An award-winning businessman and successful automotive industry entrepreneur, Rahim Hassanally is also a dedicated philanthropist, routinely supporting a wide variety of local, national, and international charities, aid and relief efforts, and other good causes. Here, entrepreneur and philanthropist Hassanally looks back on the impact of last year’s devastating California wildfires.

“During last year’s wildfires, more than 8,500 separate fires destroyed an area covering more than 1.8 million acres in total,” reveals Hassanally, who’s originally from Texas but currently based in California. Costs including damage caused by and tied to the 2018 California wildfires, he says, have gone on to top well over $3.5 billion.

Hassanally recalls that, at the time, and as the fires worsened, he was quick to lend his support wherever possible. The businessman donated generously to rescue and aid efforts, both financially, and in terms of giving an abundance of vital supplies to the community during the disaster.

Philanthropist and businessman Hassanally says that it’s vitally important that, in the aftermath of such disasters, associated risk factors, in this case, of wildfires, are both appreciated and understood. “When these disasters do happen, however,” he adds, “we must, as a nation, pledge as much support as we can to relief and aid efforts, and as quickly as possible.”

Elsewhere, Hassanally has also contributed toward other local, national, and international disaster relief efforts, including in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, which hit the Philippines several years ago. “After seeing the devastation caused, I remember thinking to myself, ‘We must take action,'” he recalls.

Rahim Hassanally and colleagues quickly rallied together, raising several thousand dollars in a little over two weeks, all of which was promptly donated to the appropriate aid agencies and disaster relief organizations in the Philippines.

“Closer to home, I’m also a keen supporter of my local air force base,” adds Hassanally, wrapping up, “as well as various homeless shelters, including the Solano Mission.”

Rahim Hassanally is a Governor of California appointed Department of Motor Vehicles New Motor Vehicle Board member, a member of the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers, and a board member of the American International Automobile Dealers Association.
