Free Breast Cancer Awareness Education Event

This October, Knox Community Hospital is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the most common kind of cancer in women after skin cancer.

About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.

The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.

  • If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your provider about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them.
  • If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram as directed by your provider.

Talk to a OB/GYN about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your provider can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms.

The KCH Center for Cancer Care encourages you to join us to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month with a free breast cancer education event on Thursday, October 25, at 6:15 pm. 

This inspiring event will not only be interesting, but it will be educational as well.

The guest speaker for this year’s event is Julie Klaski.   Julie is a breast cancer survivor who is married, physically active and an engaged member of her community as a local Young Survival Coalition (YSC) advocate and as the Ohio State Leader for YSC.

This event will be held at the Glenn A. Gallagher Centre. Registration will begin at 5:30 pm followed by the program at 6:15 pm. Refreshments will be served.  There is minimal seating, so please RSVP by October 17th to 740.393.5579.
