Stories of Hope and Courage
“Cancer didn’t beat my spirit… I love life, I love living, and I love people.”
“Thanks to my care team, there was never anything I faced that I wasn’t prepared for… During one of my biopsies, a lovely nurse talked me through the procedure, while another rubbed my shoulder. Everyone there knew what I needed at that moment.”
“The doctors, technicians, nurse navigator, and, of course, my amazing breast surgeon, made me feel that I always had the support and was never alone. Their expertise, willingness to answer any question, and overall professionalism were instrumental to my recovery. As my radiation treatment ended, I felt that I was bidding a bittersweet farewell to friends.”
Cancer screenings are the key to detecting your current risks for cancer, helping both you and your doctor plan a response in advance. Screenings can help detect cancer early and that is the best prevention.
Cancer screenings are designed to catch cancer at the earliest stage or even at a precancerous stage. Early detection is the best prevention.
Cancer screenings allow patients to make informed decisions. Even if you do not have cancer, it is still important to undergo a screening so that you are aware of your current and future risks for developing the disease.
