Think Pink

on October 24, 2012

October is quickly winding to a close, but it is still Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Just yesterday, a good friend and former Fox 8 colleague, announced live, on-air that she is battling breast cancer. My buddy, Stacey Frey,

was surrounded by her son, Aiden and husband, John, as she made the emotional announcement. You can see what she had to say by clicking on the link below.

I talked to Stacey for a while yesterday. Luckily, she caught the cancer early through self-examination. She is undergoing surgery this morning and I know she will get through it with flying colors. If you believe in the power of prayer, as I do, please say a prayer for Stacey today.

I also recently did a story for Parma Community General Hospital on new breast cancer screening technology. Tomosynthesis, or 3D mammography, is now available at PCGH. This new, 3D way to see the breast, can possibly eliminate a step in the breast cancer screening process because the image is so much sharper and more “real” to life. Anyone can opt to upgrade to a 3D Mammogram during their annual exam. Even if you choose not to upgrade to tomosynthesis, the traditional, 2d mammogram is still an excellent screening tool and it saves lives.

You can learn more about tomosynthesis and check out my story by clicking on the link below.

 

Remember, if you are over the age of 40, have a family history of breast cancer or notice something abnormal, get a mammogram!

Enjoy this beautiful fall day.
