“At Wellness Place we are committed to helping all cancer warriors in our community, no matter the cancer diagnosis,” says executive director Julie Lindholm. “However, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime, so for the month of October it is our mission to bring awareness and reminders to our community members to get your mammograms, and self-check your breasts regularly. The earlier breast cancer is diagnosed, the better the chance of successful treatment.”
