During Breast Cancer Awareness month, Saint Barnabas Medical Center and Barnabas Health Ambulatory Care Center took breast cancer awareness on the road to The Mall at Short Hills. The goal is to remind and motivate every woman to establish a pattern of annual mammography, ongoing physical exams by your physician and monthly breast self-examination. Through life-size displays and a multimedia presentation, touching stories of survivorship, like the one below from Evie Task, our goal is to encourage women to take care of their health.

 Evie Task is a gregarious public relations and communications executive, who began her career working for the American Cancer Society. She is the third generation of women in her family to have breast cancer; her mother is a 16-year survivor and her grandmother succumbed to the disease before she turned fifty.

Evie is a believer in early detection and began having mammograms in her thirties because of her strong family history.  In March 2010, at the age of 44, she was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer but due to her diligence, the cancer was caught early and removed.   Today, she is working hard to alleviate as much stress in her life as possible, cherishing each day and living life to the fullest.

Her advice to others: “Take charge of your life.  When it comes to your health care, do your research and always ask questions.”

"Breast Health Through Your Life" located in the Grand Court at The Mall at Short Hills will be up until October 31.  On Wednesday, October 24, Alison Grann, MD, Chairman, Radiation Oncology  will discuss Radiation Therapy and Breast Cancer in the Grand Court at The Mall at Short Hills, 1200 Morris Turnpike, Short Hills, NJ.

Registration is not required, but preferred by calling 1.888.724.7123 or visiting our online registration site.  For more information about our services or to schedule a mammogram, please call 973-322-7888.

You see, not too long ago I received an evite addressed to me from H&M@royalwedbot.co.uk.  Curiously, it was in my spam folder with a warning message. For an evite it was pretty ...
