CTMH Sponsors Breast Cancer Foundation Annual Gala Dinner

CTMH Sponsors Breast Cancer Foundation Annual Gala Dinner

October 6th, 2018 marked the 11th Cayman Island Breast Cancer Foundation Annual Gala Dinner. This major annual fundraiser for BCF is paramount to maintaining the reserves required to provide not only financial assistance to all those individuals/ organizations desperately needing that assistance but also to fund Wellness Programs and so much more. CTMH Doctors Hospital once again strongly supports BCF and engaged as a main sponsor for the event. It was a night to remember as Breast Cancer survivor Shannen Doherty – An accomplished actress with an extensive list of credentials sparked a widespread conversation to inspire others fighting cancer. The fundraiser raised over $300,000 in live and silent auctions all to support those in need. The charitable donations, loving support, and wholehearted commitment to the Cayman Islands Breast Cancer Foundation made it an unforgettable evening.

CTMH Doctors Hospital Imaging 3D Pain-Free Mammograms Upgraded

CTMH Doctors Hospital Imaging 3D Pain-Free Mammograms Upgraded

The CTMH Doctors Hospital 3D Pain-Free Mammograms recently got an upgrade that has been dubbed ‘Genius’ in the medical community! The new FDA approved ‘Hologic Genius™’ 3D software reduces the radiation exposure to patients by 50%. This state-of-the-art technology known as Breast tomosynthesis is the most modern version of mammography available. It creates a 3D image of the breast by using the clearest image currently available and low dose x-ray technology. We are quite excited about the new upgrades. As we have always explained to the community this is important, because the amount of radiation exposure to the patient is always something to keep to a minimum. “The 3D images make detecting any cancers or abnormalities much easier due to the images being much more advanced than the regular 2D or flat images.” Explained Dr. Yaron Rado, Chief Radiologist & Chairman of the Board of the CTMH Doctors Hospital and Imaging. “Another advantage of the Pain-Free system is none of the squeezing that is common and feared by women with traditional mammograms,” he furthers.

Recurrent & Metastatic Breast Cancer

We know you really don’t want to be here, reading about breast cancer recurrence or metastasis. If you’ve had breast cancer, the possibility of recurrence and metastatic breast cancer stays with you. You may be here because you fear this possibility. Or you may be here because it’s already happened.

Keep in mind that a recurrence of breast cancer or metastatic (advanced) disease is NOT hopeless. Many women continue to live long, productive lives with breast cancer in this stage. It is also likely that your experience with treatment this time will be somewhat different from last time. There are so many options for your recurrent or metastatic breast cancer care and so many ways to chart your progress as you move through diagnosis, treatment, and beyond.
