CMH and CCCC celebrate breast cancer survivors with a free brunch Oct. 18

Citizens Memorial Healthcare (CMH) and Central Care Cancer Center (CCCC) will host a free brunch for breast cancer survivors on Thursday, Oct. 18 from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at the Carrie J. Babb Cancer Center at CMH. You can register for the event online by clicking here.

The event will celebrate life after cancer and focus on the “Tell A Friend” program presented by the American Cancer Society and the CMH cancer team.  Attendees are encouraged to bring a guest who has supported them though their breast cancer journey.  

“Over the last 30 years, CMH has developed a comprehensive and coordinated breast care program that’s convenient and close to home,” says Robert McMillan, director of oncology support at CMH.  “From diagnosis to treatment, our cancer team will work with you to determine the optimal course of treatment and develop an individualized care plan that’s specific to your case.”

The CMH treatment team includes the highly-skilled surgeons at Bolivar Surgical Clinic and CMH Surgical Services, pathologists, radiologists and expert medical and radiation oncologists at Central Care Cancer Center.  Access to breast cancer clinical trials is available to patients who qualify.  Patient support services available through the Carrie J. Babb Cancer Center include educational materials, wigs and mastectomy supplies, an oncology social worker, oncology-certified nutritionist and massage therapist, support groups and more. The newest addition to the CMH cancer program will be the Tremain Family Hospitality House scheduled to open spring 2013.
