NORFOLK, NE — Breast cancer can be a scary diagnosis, but For the Girls wants your to know you aren’t alone.
Diane Brennan, a nurse practitioner and president of For the Girls board of directors says, “They aren’t in this by themselves, there is a group of local women in this community who have their backs.”
Last year the non-profit initiated a new platform to educate people on breast cancer called For the Girls University.
“It’s twofold in that one there is educational offerings and second it provides fellowship for women who are survivors.”
On October 18, area survivors and their guest are invited to a complimentary evening to learn more about the correlation between genetics and breast cancer.
This year they are having their newest doctor, Dr. Rachel Weber talk to them about their options after breast cancer.
“I’ve asked Dr. Rachel Weber, who is plastic surgeon to talk abut different things you can use for reconstruction. There are new developments all the time and I think it’s important to know that these options are available locally…”
With one in eight women being diagnosed with breast cancer, Brennan says it’s important to understand what your options are.
Social hour starts at 5:30-6:30 p.m. with complimentary dinner and lecture at 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
