When it comes to breast cancer, early detection saves lives. October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, is devoted to educating everyone about breast cancer, the importance of early detection and access to timely, high-quality care.
No matter who you are or where you live, breast cancer may touch your life. Know the warning signs of breast cancer, your risk and what’s normal for you so you can take action if there are any changes in your breasts or underarm areas. Catch us each Monday for a new fact or tip!

Donating Blood Saves Lives
Chris Malloy during one of her many visits to donate blood at Cape Fear Valley Health
When Chris Malloy’s father was diagnosed with leukemia nearly 40 years ago, donated blood gave her a few precious months with him before he passed.
Knowing the importance of having blood available when patients need it is why she has been giving since 1979. Cape Fear Valley Health tells our Jami McLaughlin how vital blood donations are.
