Breast Cancer (#509)
Breast cancer is more common in white women, yet more deadly in black women. While the disease is not as prevalent in men, it has claimed their lives as well. Discussing these and other issues are Angie Green of Lexington, a breast cancer survivor; Lois Turner, whose husband battled breast cancer; and Judith Hatch, a Lexington nurse.
Angie Green is a two-time breast cancer survivor who works to keep others healthy through her involvement in recreational activities in Lexington.
Lois Turner’s husband, Larry, was just a few months shy of celebrating five years as a breast cancer survivor when he died in the Comair Flight 5191 crash in Lexington in August 2006. Mrs. Turner has become an advocate for breast cancer awareness in men.
Judith Hatch, a breast cancer nurse navigator at Central Baptist Hospital in Lexington, discusses the importance of cancer screenings and the latest advances in treatment.
