The leaves are slowly turning colors. Fall is officially here. Each October, in honor of breast cancer awareness month, Women magazine typically includes an article on the signs and symptoms of breast cancer. While awareness and early detection are important for the best outcome, this month we wanted to share new information on advancements in breast health and breast cancer care.
Writer Katie Ellingson reveals more and more area health care providers are taking a team approach to breast cancer treatment and why this strategy is beneficial. And, writer Kat Boogaard explains why thermography is getting some attention as women continue to take charge of their health.
Cover woman Mary Schmidt is a 15-year breast cancer survivor. While the initial diagnosis was shocking, Schmidt took charge, adopted a positive attitude and focused on the things in life that make her happy — singing, cooking and spending time with those who mean the most. Be sure to read about this remarkable woman. Happy fall!
