A WOMAN DIES OF BREAST CANCER. That sobering fact is according to Susan B. Komen For the Cure®. Women and others all over the world have joined forces to defeat this dreadful disease.
Women in our small corner of the world came together Tuesday night to learn the importance of education, regular mammograms, and early detection. In addition, attendees learned how breast cancer impacts individuals and families, types of treatment available, pain management, care-giving, and results of current medical research. Courtesy bone density tests, massages, refreshments, and prizes were given.
Our thanks to representatives from Lee’s Summit Medical Center, The Breast Center @ Centerpoint Medical Center, Cancer Action Center, Susan B. Komen For the Cure®, Be Still…Therapeutic Massage, and Rhonda’s Relaxation Center for sharing their time and expertise.
