"A Unique Quality Resale Experience"

 DID YOU KNOW:    For more than 45 years, the American Cancer Society Reach To Recovery program has been helping people cope with their breast cancer experience – as early as the first possibility of a diagnosis and continuing for as long as breast cancer remains a personal concern to them.

 Our Reach To Recovery volunteers are specially trained to help people through their experience by offering a measure of comfort and an opportunity for emotional grounding and informed decision making. As breast cancer survivors, our volunteers give patients and family members an opportunity to express feelings, talk about fears and concerns, and ask questions of someone who has been there. Most importantly, Reach To Recovery volunteers offer understanding, support, and hope because they themselves have survived breast cancer and gone on to live productive lives. Program volunteers do not provide medical advice. For more information about this program contact the American Cancer Society at 1-800-ACS-2345.
 
   Happenings through October 22 at the West Seattle Discovery Shop. (FYI: Watch the board behind the counter for "Manager's Specials" that may show up at any time.)

HAPPENINGS - Sept 25-Oct 8


"A Unique Quality Resale Experience"

DID YOU KNOW:    The American Cancer Society has guidelines for the early detection of breast cancer for women with average- and high-risk profiles. The primary exam for average-risk women is mammography. There are three main types of mammography: film, digital (2D mammography), and digital breast tomosynthesis (3D mammography). Film mammography has largely been replaced by digital, which appears to be even more accurate for women under the age of 50 and those with dense breast tissue. Early detection of breast cancer leads to a greater range of and less invasive treatment options.
