Cancer center offers online breast health program

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center and Healthy Acadia are sponsoring “Know Your Lemons,” a fun interactive breast health education program.

“Until we have a cure for breast cancer, the best chance for survival is early detection. This can’t happen until we know what to look for, feel for, and what to do if something seems out of place,” according to a news release from the resource center.

The Know Your Lemons Virtual Education Party is rewarding, fun, and interactive. During Breast Cancer Awareness month, learn in more detail what you need to know about 9 Risk Factors, 12 Symptoms of Breast Cancer, and 6 Detection Tools. The program will be facilitated by Angela Fochesato, a Healthy Acadia Community Health Program Manager and Cancer Patient Navigator in Washington County.

This free event is open to all and will take place on Thursday, October 15, from 12 to 1:15 p.m., on the Zoom platform, which will be interactive for those that register, and it will be live-streamed on the Beth C. Wright Cancer Resource Center’s Facebook page. If you have questions or would like to register to participate in the Zoom portion of the event, call664-0339 or email info@bethwrightcancercenter.org, otherwise join the event live on Facebook.
