Breast Cancer Awareness

Today is the last day of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, so I wanted to post a couple informative segments I did for “Here’s to Your Health.” I’m the Senior Field Correspondent (fancy title) for the show, and I travel across the country to host and produce segments on health-related topics. The show airs on TLC on select Saturday mornings.

The first segment is about Digital Mammograms and how they are helping the fight against breast cancer. Digital Imaging allows the experts to have clearer pictures and more immediate results, so patients don’t have to wait as long to know what’s going on…early detection is SO important to help cure the cancer!

The second (breast cancer) piece I field produced/hosted highights the connection between breast cancer and bone loss. Many women don’t realize how the cancer can affect their bones, and in this piece… the patient didn’t even realize she had breast cancer until she began to have bone loss issues in her eye!
