A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for Rutherford County and most of Middle Tennessee from Wednesday at noon until Thursday at noon. 3-6" of snow/sleet and up to a 1/10" of ice is possible.
Middle Tennessee Medical Center invites mothers and daughters to a free educational brunch to learn about breast cancer. It will be from 10:00 until noon on Tuesday morning, May 18th in suite 101 of the Seton Building on the hospital's campus.
Mothers and daughters often share a lot: their looks, family heirlooms or even clothing. MTMC wants them to share knowledge. The National Breast Cancer Foundation reports that one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Even though it is the most common cancer in women and a leading cause of death, early detection and treatment significantly improves a woman’s chance for a full recovery.
Fact From Top Regional Experts
While enjoying their complimentary brunch, the mothers and daughters will learn from some of this region's experts, including: Breast Cancer Surgeons Doctors Mark Akins and Laura Baskin, along with Radiologist Dr. Marynelle Klumpe, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Nicholar Tarola, and Health Nurse Navigator Carol Williams.
More than 40,000 women in the Rutherford County community choose the Center for Breast Health at Middle Tennessee Medical Center for breast procedures each year.
