Friend to Friend – Breast Cancer Awareness

Awareness, understanding, support – Friend to Friend


Mercy Medical Group and KCRA Channel 3 have partnered to bring you “Friend to Friend,” a program designed to provide breast health education and resources, including early warning signs of breast cancer, regular self-exam reminders and the “Doctor’s Diary,” a monthly feature written by Mercy Medical Group’s Joelle Jakobsen, MD.

One in every seven women will be diagnosed with breast cancer sometime in her life. Understand your risk. Learn the early warning signs. Discover support. Friend to Friend.
