Breast Cancer Awareness Month

BreastCAOctoberOur awesome Mammography Department staff:  Heidi, Laurie and Kathy with Radiologist, Dr. Noreen LaSalle are pictured above.  They are excited about National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and have decorated our state-of-the-art 3D Mammography Suite with fall mums, pumpkins and a special tote bag.  The tote bag is chock-full of goodies for a lucky winner.  Patients having their mammograms during the month of October will be given a free raffle ticket to enter the drawing for the tote to be held on October 31st.

Take time this month to learn more about breast cancer – the MOST common cancer among women in the US.  Prevention and early detection are so important.  Learn about risk factors such as obesity, sedentary lifestyle, alcohol consumption and smoking.  Examine your own breasts, have annual clinical breast exams and have your mammogram!  Encourage your mothers, sisters, friends and daughters to do the same!  For more information http://www.cancer.org/cancer/breastcancer/index
