Breast Cancer Awareness

At Lee Health, we are caring people, fighting against Breast Cancer. We are here to support you, we are #LeeHealthStrong

Caring People, Fighting Cancer

Countless families and friends have been affected by a breast cancer diagnosis. The fear these women and men face of the unknown is only heightened when combined with costs of treatment, travel, and navigating their new world. That’s why at Lee Health’s Regional Cancer Center, we’ve turned October into HOPETOBER, a month dedicated to giving hope to breast cancer patients. 

The Regional Cancer Center joins other top-tier cancer treatment centers in offering complementary therapies and services to cancer care that can reduce anxiety, stress, neuropathy, nausea, insomnia, pain and weight changes. Through the Regional Cancer Center, those in Southwest Florida do not have to leave home and the support of family and friends to receive the world-class care they need and deserve during their fight against cancer.

It takes many specialists and support staff to fight breast cancer. That is why the Regional Cancer Center offers a comprehensive care program, complete with oncologists, nurse navigators, a dietician, genetics counselor and more. The certified and dedicated team designs treatment programs that exceed national survivorship rates through a compassionate and collaborative experience.

Breast Cancer: Stories of Survival, Courage, and Inspiration

At Lee Health, we have exceptional employees who are also incredibly strong breast cancer survivors, and we want to take this opportunity to celebrate each one of them and their inspiring stories for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Mammogram Screening

All Lee Health Hospitals have implemented extensive safeguards to ensure you will receive the safest care possible. We want to encourage you not to delay medical care. We know you may have concerns about visiting a healthcare facility, but we urge you not to forgo a trip to your doctor because of COVID-19 fears. Please take care of your health and well-being including annual mammogram screenings.
