|SUE - a breast cancer survivor||
Looking ahead, I will be at the Breast Support Group meeting-at the YWCA in Meadville on December 9th at 7pm. Bring a treat and we will all share. Also on the 16th I will be heading to the Linesville Senior Center to do a program at 11 am. In retrospect, I got an envelope of thank you's from the students at Meadville Area Senior High School after my presentation there. I truly enjoyed their comments and insights. The last thing I do want to address are the recommended changes to the guidelines for mammograms and not only will the ACS, the Yolanda G. Barco Oncology Institute (refer to Dr. Brown's article in the Meadville Tribune on December 1, 2009) and myself will continue to support and encourage self breast exams, yearly clinical exams and mammograms from age 40 on a yearly basis and further follow up for anyone that presents with problems. I look forward to hearing from you and serving the community so please feel free to contact me at the institute.
