Breast Cancer Awareness was the subject of a panel discussion at the Marvin House recently.
A group of women experienced in the field of cancer services and survival presented an informal discussion. Participants included Gale Svenson-Campbell, who spoke on Lily's Hope, a Zonta project that helps women dealing with the adverse effects of chemotherapy and their resulting hair loss. Also presenting were Brenda Munella, a certified women's health practitioner from JAMA Women's Health Office; Jane Winter, a breast cancer survivor; and Sally Stauffer, a cancer survivor who was also the group's moderator. Cancer survivors presented a view of "having a second chance at life."
Since 1985, October has been designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with an urge to raise funds for research and cancers causes, prevention, diagnosis and treatment. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer
