Breast Cancer Lunch and Learn 10/23/2014
Our Lunch and Learn held on 10/23/2014, was a huge success! We had great food, great conversation, and socks galore!! We learned three very important take-aways from our speakers:
1) Early detection of breast cancer is the KEY to survival
2) Complete a monthly self breast exam without fail and contact your Doctor with concerns
3) Complete an annual mammogram once you reach age 40 without fail
We also learned about a local breast cancer support group right here in Bainbridge. They are available to offer support, guidance, and comfort to those women battling breast cancer. If you know someone that needs their help, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Other resources have also been posted under our Patient Education, Community, Education, and Resources pages.
Thank you to everyone that attended this event, and made it possible! We heard many survival stories, and we know that early detection is the key to beating Breast Cancer. Together, we can make a difference!
