Categories: President's Message

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, and the Norma Pfriem Breast Center is, well… everywhere, spreading their message: early detection is the best prevention.  Click on the link below to watch a clip from the October 5 Today show on NBC, featuring patient Dahlia Clark Hanshaw.  She received a “Pink Surprise” from co-host Hoda Kotb.

The Breast Center offers financial assistance to women who need help paying for breast care services and has an extensive community outreach program that ramps up in October with the annual Pink Pledge, an awareness and fundraising campaign.  The Breast Center also helps the uninsured and underinsured through the Connecticut Early Detection and Prevention program.  If you or someone you know needs information on breast cancer or would like to schedule an appointment, call (203)255-5300.
