Did you know the five-year survival rate of breast cancer is over 90 percent
when caught early? Do you know when or how to be screened for breast cancer?
What is the next step if you or someone you love is diagnosed? According
to the American Cancer Society there is no sure way to prevent breast
cancer. However, there are things all women can do that might reduce their
risk and help increase the odds that if cancer does occur, it will be
found at an early, more treatable stage.
Join us on Thursday, Oct. 16, 2014, as Abraham Cheong, M.D., medical oncologist
