Methuen Caritas Holy Family Hospital and Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Methuen Holy Family William L Lane Cancer Management Center

Methuen Holy Family William L Lane Cancer Management Center Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is breast cancer awareness month.  Did you know that breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer in woman?  Methuen is lucky to have the highly regarded and highly rated Caritas Holy Family Hospital William L Lane Cancer Management Center right here in town.

This is an issue near and dear to me as one of my close relatives just completed months and months of treatment for breast cancer.  She is doing much better now thanks to the fantastic doctors at Holy Family.  Check out the the Cancer Center’s website to learn more about breast cancer and how early detection can save lives and help spread the word and awareness.

Holy Family Hospital is sponsoring local breast cancer awareness events this month:
