MVHS Cancer Care Center Kicks Off Breast Cancer Awareness Month With "Dedicate A Ribbon"
Tuesday, October 1, 2019, the Mohawk Valley Health System (MVHS) kicked off breast cancer awareness month by giving visitors to its webpage the opportunity to dedicate a ribbon to someone who has been affected by cancer.
The MVHS Dedicate a Ribbon campaign asks people to visit mvhealthsystem.org/dedicate-a-ribbon to help spread awareness, hope and remembrance for all those whose lives have been affected by cancer, has battled cancer in the past, or recognize a MVHS caregiver that went above and beyond throughout a cancer patient’s treatment. By selecting a ribbon, visitors can create a message for their loved ones and share the ribbon on the website’s wall. Visitors to the site also have the opportunity to share that message via social media.
For 28 years, the MVHS Cancer Center has been nationally accredited by the Commission on Cancer. More than 70 percent of all newly diagnosed cancer patients are treated at a Commission on Cancer-accredited community hospital cancer center like MVHS. The standards they must meet are identical to those for cancer centers found in larger cities, including those associated with teaching hospitals.
MVHS and SUNY Upstate Medical University have partnered to provide advanced cancer care close to home at the MVHS Cancer Center. The advanced technology that the MVHS Cancer Center offers, combined with excellent nurses, physicians, surgeons and radiologists make cancer treatment close to home a possibility for residents of the Mohawk Valley and surrounding areas.
