Awareness and good self-care are key!!!
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide.  1 in 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.   According to the National Breast Cancer foundation: death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1990, in part due to better screening and early detection, increased awareness, and continually improving treatment options.  In general, mammography is the most effective screening tool used to find breast cancer in most women. It can find cancers at an early stage, when they are small and the chances of survival are highest.

A cancer diagnosis -- or a diagnosis of any major medical illness -- is a life changing event.  Our clinicians are available to help you navigate through your journey, deal with the uncertainty and fear,  cope with losses and changes, and, always, to be mindful of the joys and meaning in life.  We have many  years of experience working with people impacted by cancer and other medical conditions, at every stage of their illness.  Don't hesitate to call on us to help.

As the year comes to a close, take a moment to think about what you want to leave behind... and, what you want to bring with you.  ~RS

We were all so happy to have the chance to gather outside the office to eat, drink, and be merry!

I think this is advice that we could all use from time to time --- ESPECIALLY around the holidays.  Taking good care of yourself is one of the greatest gifts you can give to your loved ones ♥   ~RS

We were happy to welcome all the children from our neighbor, the YMCA Childcare Program, for trick-or-treating fun!  There are few things more adorable than 60+ kids swarming in their princess and superhero costumes.  Some of the staff at Paragon joined in the fun in their own Disney- and fairy-tale garb.  :)
