As Governor Markell proclaims "May
is Mammography Month" we hope you will join with him and all of us at DBCC in spreading the word that mammograms save
That message was reinforced by Dr.
Len Lichtenfeld, Deputy Chief Medical Officer of the American Cancer Society,
recently, when he spoke at Breast Cancer:
Before, After & In the Middle - DBCC's
13th Annual Breast Cancer Update. Dr. Lichtenfeld said, "Until a
better test comes along, this is the best test we have," and continued, "I
don't want to accept the possibility that 30% of women could die because of
[suggested] changes to mammography guidelines."
During May is Mammography Month,
as we celebrate the mothers in our families, please remember that 70-80% of
women who get breast cancer have no family history of the disease. So remember
to say those three little words: Get a mammogram!
The staff and board of DBCC want to say two big words to everyone who supported our 1st Annual
DE-feet Breast Cancer 5K Run/1M Walk on May 2: THANK YOU! The event was a huge
success with 568 registered participants, and it was a beautiful day at Tanger Outlet
Center. The event broke a
20-year record for the number of registrations for a first-time run/walk
managed by Seashore Strider Event Productions. We look forward to continuing to
build this event each year.
We invite you to participate in
other upcoming events (listed below), as well, and to visit our website at www.debreastcancer.org for links to
breast cancer topics in the news, and breast cancer programs and services here
in Delaware. There's also a "DONATE" button on the homepage for making
easy online contributions. It's a beautiful way to honor your mother,
grandmother, sister or friend for Mother's Day or anytime of the year.
As always, please call us at 866-312-DBCC
with any questions or concerns. We're here to help.
