In Support of Breast Cancer & the Hamilton Bulldogs
Submitted By Jason Shedden on Tuesday, February 9, 2016
In recent years the GMHA has been deeply affected by Breast Cancer.  In support of our loved ones who have been touched by Breast Cancer, we offer our support to the Hamilton Bulldogs and their Pink in the Rink event which will be held on Saturday February 20th.  Please click on the image below to read about this event and register to take part and show your support.  All donations go to the Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre specifically to the CIBC Breast Assessment Centre.

About the CIBC Breast Assessment Centre:

Over the years the Pink in the Rink Games has supported the new CIBC Breast Assessment Centre – a new facility that has changed the way we treat breast cancer in our region. With one appointment in one day, a person can have a full diagnostic and if needed, within 5 business days, a treatment plan. This has made a significant impact on the health and well being of people in our community.

When faced with a breast abnormality, women and their families are thrust into the unknown. Under the current system, many women are sent from appointment to appointment and specialist to specialist, resulting in months of stress and worry as they wait for a diagnosis.

Located in the old Henderson emergency area, this centre has brought together all the services such as diagnostic imaging, surgical appointments, family physicians, community care providers and volunteer organizations for breast care all in one place and is a huge relief for those who might otherwise have to book multiple appointments over several months just to get a diagnosis. Designed to be the most comprehensive facility of its type in the region, the CIBC Breast Assessment Centre will provide support to women from across south-central Ontario. It will be one of only a handful of facilities in the country offering genetic testing for those with a family history of breast cancer.

The difference for women, and some men, can be seen thanks to the CIBC Breast Assessment Centre that has only just begun to impact the lives of those touched by breast cancer. With new technology always on the forefront and the growing demand of the centre’s resources, we are still working hard to keep momentum and to continue improving outcomes for our patients.

Juravinski Hospital and Cancer Centre is grateful for the Hamilton Bulldogs’ Pink in the Rink Game and for everyone who has participated.
