Beach Terrace Proudly Supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This month Beach Terrace Care center helps promote awareness of breast cancer during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. For the staff at Beach Terrace Care Center, educating the public on this important issue is a priority.
Many people want to know what impact National Breast Cancer Awareness Month can have on their lives. The truth is that Breast Cancer Awareness Month can make a huge difference in many people’s lives, regardless if they are diagnosed with breast cancer. This month offers the opportunity to spread important information about the steps women can take to help discover breast cancer in its early stages.
Here are a few ideas that anyone, regardless of age, gender, or diagnosis can do to help raise awareness:
Ask doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers to speak to women about the significance of getting tested for breast cancer.
Organize a communal breast cancer awareness talk in your neighborhood for women to become educated on the dangers involved and the importance of stay up-to-date with breast cancer research and information.

“Here at Beach Terrace Care Center, we would like to emphasize on everyone, especially women above forty years old, the importance of staying current on your mammograms and other breast cancer screening tests.  Please talk to your medical provider about breast cancer and what you can do to detect it early,” says Martin Zwick, administrator at Beach Terrace Care Center.
