“An astounding one in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime, with an additional 2,360 cases diagnosed in men this year alone. Science has come a long way since the advent of this disease, but more work is needed. Gold Crest Care Center is committed to helping raise awareness and funding for the organizations that dedicate their days to research and testing. Together we can, and will, find a cure for breast cancer,” says Michael Salamon, of Gold Crest Care Center.

Prevention is the first, and easiest, step women and men can take towards tackling cancer. Taking the time to learn how to perform self-exams, staying on top of regular mammogram appointments and following up with your medical provider are steps that can mean the difference between life and death for cancer patients. Once a breast cancer diagnosis is delivered, finding the right medical and psychological support is the number one priority. As a leading NYC nursing home, Gold Crest Care Center offers patients access to the latest in cancer care while providing each patient with the counseling they need to battle their illness.

Those unaffected by cancer can still do their part to improve the lives of those suffering from this illness by donating to breast cancer research organizations, wearing pink in solidarity and purchasing cosmetics from companies that donate a portion of their proceeds to research and treatment programs.
