    Breast Cancer Awareness in 2021 Featuring Shelby Blank, M.D.

    Breast Cancer Awareness in 2021 Featuring Shelby Blank, M.D.

    Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in women—about 270,000 women are diagnosed each year, accounting for approximately 30% of all cancer cases, according to the American Cancer Society. Although it happens much less often, men can develop breast cancer, too.  In each of these people, breast cancer began the same way: A rogue cell began to multiply in ways it’s not supposed to, usually in the milk glands (called lobules) or the ducts that carry milk, eventually forming a tumor.  How each person's breast cancer develops from there depends on lots of variables. But importantly, most breast cancers are highly treatable. On average, the five-year survival rate (meaning: the percentage of people who are still living five years after diagnosis) for breast cancer that has not spread to other parts of the body is 90%.  Shelby Blank, MD is a board-certified general surgeon at Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare (TMH) and Medical Director of TMH’s Walker Breast Program. Dr. Blank leads the program’s Breast Clinic, providing an unparalleled level of care and a more efficient treatment process for patients being diagnosed with and treated for breast cancer. Dr. Blank earned her graduate degree in 1994 and her medical degree in 2001 before going on to complete an internship and residency in surgery – all at the University of South Florida. Dr. Blank is Board Certified by the American Board of Surgery and has over 20 years of experience as a general surgeon. Her passion is providing the most comprehensive care for women’s breast health to our community, which was one of the driving factors in establishing the newest multidisciplinary Breast Clinic at TMH.   To learn more about Dr. Blank, TMH's Walker Breast Program, and the latest about breast cancer, click the link https://www.tmh.org/   Joseph Ward is the Outreach Specialist/Health Educator for the Ryan White Program with Neighborhood Medical Center.  Mathias Sweet is the Ryan White Program Director for Neighborhood Medical Center.   Visit http://www.neighborhoodmedicalcenter.... to learn more about accessing health care.   Mind Your Body & Soul is available every Wednesday at:  Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Neighborhood......  More Podcast Links:   NMC Podcast: https://neighborhoodmedicalcenter.org......

    The Tallahassee AIDS Walk Is 9/16/21

    The Tallahassee AIDS Walk Is 9/16/21

    SHOW LESSTallahassee AIDS Walk 2021  

    Big Bend Cares’ event, the Tallahassee AIDS Walk, draws hundreds of participants each year. This year’s event will be held on Thursday, September 16th, 2021 at Railroad Square.  

    Individual community members, school and university groups, companies, and faith groups are encouraged to register as individuals or as part of a team. Walkers are also encouraged to become fundraisers to help us reach our goal. After a memorial walk around Railroad Square, participants can gather at the Railroad Square Craft House.  

    This event is a celebration of all of those who have fought so hard to fight the spread of HIV/AIDS. All proceeds will go towards helping Big Bend Cares provide direct-care services for our clients and HIV prevention and education for the entire Big Bend region.   

    Why We Walk  

    Did you know that in the Big Bend area, 1 out of every 172 adults is living with HIV/AIDS? In the African American community, it’s 1 out of every 72 adults. And, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, more than 1.1 million people in the US are living with HIV – with 1 in 7 of them not even aware that they have the disease!  

    Yes, the epidemic is far from over.  

    This is why clients, community members, staff and advocates of Big Bend Cares, Neighborhood Medical Center, and Bond Community Health Center are walking together on Thursday, September 16th, 2021.  We walk for the more than 100,000 people living with HIV in Florida. We walk to remember those who no longer can. We walk to remind you that you’re not alone. We walk for a nation. We walk to educate. We walk for change. 

    The Tallahassee AIDS Walk works to raise awareness and funds to support HIV programs in the community. All proceeds will benefit our 3 local HIV/AIDS service organizations.  We honor and remember friends and family, celebrate those who are living full lives with the virus, and recognize the work that still needs to be done.

    Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month | Featuring Andrea K. Friall, M.D.

    Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month | Featuring Andrea K. Friall, M.D.

    September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month Ovarian cancer is a group of diseases that originates in the ovaries, or in the related areas of the fallopian tubes and the peritoneum. Women have two ovaries that are located in the pelvis, one on each side of the uterus. The ovaries make female hormones and produce eggs for reproduction. Women have two fallopian tubes that are a pair of long, slender tubes on each side of the uterus. Eggs pass from the ovaries through the fallopian tubes to the uterus. The peritoneum is the tissue lining that covers organs in the abdomen.  When ovarian cancer is found in its early stages, treatment works best. Ovarian cancer often causes signs and symptoms, so it is important to pay attention to your body and know what is normal for you. Symptoms may be caused by something other than cancer, but the only way to know is to see your doctor, nurse, or other health care professional.  Andrea K.
