Breast Cancer Awareness … We all can make a difference!
October is here and in addition to the signs of change in the seasons, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This matters greatly because it is an opportunity to spread not only awareness, but also education about a disease that affects 1 in 8 women along with their families and friends, and unfortunately ends the life of more than 40,000 women each year in the U.S. alone. On a personal as well as a professional note, I feel honored to have been involved with the care and reconstruction of breast cancer patients of all ages for more than 30 years. It is encouraging and gratifying to be a part of their journey and to enjoy long-term relationships with such courageous and amazing patients that all of us at EVOLV consider friends.
There has been incredible progress and improvement in the prediction, diagnosis, treatment, and reconstruction of breast cancer which has resulted in reducing mortality rates overall as well as improving the quality of life for women as well as men dealing with breast cancer.
