Arborlawn is hosting an informative event called “Woman to Woman: Doctors Discuss Women's Cancers” on Tuesday, October 7 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. in the Worship Center. Three female oncologists from Texas Oncology will be here to discuss women's cancer issues with interested ladies and their loved ones.
Dr Katie Shide: “Some 39,000 women in the U.S. will die from breast cancer in 2014. As frightening as that number is, death rates have actually been in a decline since the early 1990s. There are other reassuring numbers. Eight out of ten lumps found in the breast are benign. There are currently more than 2.5 million women who are survivors in the United States today. Earlier diagnosis combined with better treatments have improved survival of women diagnosed with breast cancer. Many questions still remain. Such as, ‘Is there a link between breast pain and breast cancer?’ and ‘What if my daughter has breast cancer; does my risk go up?’ Learn more and be able to ask four breast cancer specialists your questions.” Katie Shide, M.D. is a Radiation Oncologist and will be on the panel of doctors speaking at the “Woman to Woman” seminar at Arborlawn on October 7.
