Monongahela Valley Hospital Offers Free Breast Cancer Education Program/Luncheon on Oct. 28

(October 2, 2015 - Carroll Township, Pa.)

Monongahela Valley Hospital and the Charles L. and Rose Sweeney Melenyzer Pavilion Regional Cancer Center will present a free Breast Cancer Education and Screening Luncheon on Wednesday, Oct. 28, at 1 p.m. in the hospital's Anthony M. Lombardi Education Conference Center.

The event is free to everyone who registers and will feature a light lunch, guest speakers, information regarding early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer as well as optional breast examinations.

Following a survivor's perspective from Kathy Cameron, presentations will be given by MVH physicians Natalie Furgiuele, M.D., F.A.C.S., a breast surgeon; and Shani Gunning-Carter, M.D., a medical oncologist. The program also includes plastic surgeon Lori Cherup, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Following the optional physical breast exams by members of the hospital's medical staff, a mammogram will be scheduled for any woman who has an abnormal finding during the screening. Routine yearly mammograms may also be scheduled for women who have a family history of breast cancer, who fall into a high-risk category and who have never had a baseline mammogram or who meet the recommended age guidelines.

"Knowledge is power and this program will increase awareness of this important issue in women's lives," said Lisa Hruby, MVH assistant vice president of Nursing. "Our physicians' clinical experiences and expertise will make this a valuable and timely presentation for our guests."

Advance registration is required by calling MVH's registration hotline at 724-258-1333.
