HAVE YOU OR YOUR LOVED ONES BEEN SCREENED RECENTLY?
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, as many of you know. A very important component that can save a life is regular screening. Continue reading below for some FAQ’s.
Can breast cancer be found early?
Breast cancer is sometimes found after symptoms appear, but many women with breast cancer have no symptoms. This is why regular breast cancer screening is so important.
What do Imaging Tests help to detect?
Different tests can be used to look for and diagnose breast cancer. If your doctor finds an area of concern on a screening test (a mammogram), or if you have symptoms that could mean breast cancer, you will need more tests to know for sure if it’s cancer.

When faced with a bad day, I reflect on the positive side of the day and know tomorrow is a new day.

Why did you choose Caring Friends?
I grew up in the business helping my mom at the assisted living and with Caring Friends when it first started. When I would come home from college I would fill in as a caregiver and knew when I graduated nursing school this was a place I wanted to end up working for my career. Being able to take care of individuals in their homes (and being the reason they’re not in a facility) is a feeling unmatched and very rewarding.
