BVMI is feeling the love from the Breast Cancer Survivors Foundation. A few weeks ago, we received exciting news: the Foundation not only approved our grant application but decided to DOUBLE its investment!
Support from BCSF goes toward BVMI’s Women’s Health Initiative, specifically to help fund the nurse navigator position. Vicky Fliman, RN, provides education on breast health and cancer prevention for women patients, and helps them schedule – and ensures they get – prescribed tests like mammograms.
“Our women patients are so concerned about the health and well-being of their family members that they often put their own health last,” says Vicky. “Education and screening are crucial to early detection and it’s one of many ways we can make sure our patients stay healthy.”
