Breast Cancer Screening at Highlands-Cashiers Hospital

June 9, 2021
TRANSCRIPT: So, my name is Rachel McEachern. I'm a fellowship-trained breast imager and one of the co-directors of breast imaging with Asheville Radiology. We save the most lives and the most years of lives when we start screening at the age of 40, and we do it annually. The longer that you wait – if you do have a cancer lingering – it'll get bigger, and it'll  make the treatment more difficult and more intensive. Looking for change year to year is really one of the key things that helps us be really good at our job. I would encourage women that if you haven't gotten your screening mammogram or that if you put it off because of COVID or other personal reasons that you come in and get your screening mammogram this year because breast cancer won't wait.

BRIAN LEDERBRAND, Bulk Fuel Transporter, Taylorville, Illinois: My supervisor sent me down. I left Tuesday at 4:00 PM and drove all night, got down here yesterday morning and started pumping out gas. JESSICA WALLACE, RN, Home Health Nurse, CarePartners Rehabilitation: My name is Jessica Wallace. I'm a home health nurse for CarePartners. I see probably seven, eight patients a day. So I, on Wednesday, was not sure how my week was going to go, if I was going to be able to see patients at all, and then we got notified that HCA was providing us with gas. So, without this service I wouldn't have gas. I wouldn't be able to see my patients. and several of them have to be seen three times a week, or they'd have to go to the ER. I'm very thankful that HCA has provided this gas service for us. We absolutely have to have it to drive to go see our patients who need to see us. So it's a lifesaver for me and my patients. #CareLikeFamily
