Paige’s Story: Partner Thankful that Mobile Mammography Unit Helped Saved Her Life
In another edition of Paige’s Story, we hear from her devoted partner, Joseph Riecke. He joined Paige and 10,000 or so racers and walkers, along with supporters and employees of the James Graham Brown Cancer Center and University of Louisville Hospital, in the battle against breast cancer at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® on Saturday, October 9, at Louisville’s Waterfront Park.
The annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® event at Louisville’s Waterfront Park is a celebration to honor survivors and a time to remember those who have lost the battle with breast cancer.
Joe acknowledged the vital importance of the Brown Cancer Center’s mobile mammography unit for Paige’s breast cancer survival. He said the mobile mammography van’s appearance at the General Electric Appliance Park, Paige’s place of employment, was what prompted Paige to get a mammogram.
Her wise decision ultimately led to the discovery of her breast cancer. Then, her subsequent treatment at the James Graham Brown Cancer Center, in turn, helped Paige beat breast cancer.
