Her Fight is Our Fight

1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer at some point in their lives, but early detection can be crucial in the fight against this disease. At LCH we hope to bring awareness to breast cancer and provide the support people may need.

Cecelia Martinez* has been a patient at LCH for nearly 14 years. She started her care with LCH when she arrived from El Salvador. Like many of our patients, through word of mouth, she heard this was a great place to find care in the comfort of her native language.

Throughout the years Cecelia visited LCH for regular checkups. For her medical, dental, and social assistance appointments, we’ve been there to help. Cecelia felt grateful for LCH when she discovered a bump on her breast. She states, “When I felt the little bump, it had just been 2 weeks since I had my gallbladder removed… the first thing I did was call LCH. They got me in right away and they referred me to the hospital to have an ultrasound done, but it all started with LCH.”

When people come to LCH, we want them to feel like their worries have been addressed. We care for people and stand by them through their journey back to health. Cecelia states, “I went through cancer and Mrs. Daphne, is an excellent social worker. She was the one who helped me throughout the process. They even scheduled my appointments for chemo.”

We strive to be one of our patients’ biggest champions. It’s fulfilling for everyone at LCH to help people like Cecelia, who is now 3 years cancer free. “Everything was great! They attended me well and they gave me the reassurance to share with them what I needed during my appointments,” she states.

We thank Cecelia for trusting us to be a part of her cancer journey. Like Cecelia there are many people in our community who would have no place to go without LCH. We hope to shine a light on breast cancer screenings and if you or someone you know is in need of a checkup – schedule your appointment today — call 610.444.7550.
