Founded in 2010, Not My Daughter… Find A Cure Now! has been a champion in the community for breast cancer research, awareness, and patient support.
With a focus on ancillary services for breast cancer patients and survivors, the organization is newly partnering with Broward Health Coral Springs to bolster support for these much-needed services for the community.
As the leading provider of health care and medical services to northwest Broward County since 1987, Broward Health Coral Springs is continuously evolving to serve the community best. Through the Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Fund at Broward Health Coral Springs, which provides breast care to women in financial need, breast cancer support and care are at the forefront of Broward Health’s mission, and now with the aid of Not My Daughter… Find A Cure Now!’s unwavering fundraising endeavors, the community can expect to see a greater focus on these efforts.
“By aligning with organizations like Not My Daughter and the Lisa Boccard Breast Cancer Fund, our focus is on making an impact in the local community,” adds Jared Smith, Broward Health Coral Springs CEO. “Both organizations are heavily focused on helping women by raising funds for breast cancer research and services. With that, we’re able to provide even more advanced care for patients.”
The state-of-the-art facility at Broward Health Coral Springs’ Women’s Center offers comprehensive services for women’s care and breast cancer care, including mammography services, surgery, and everything in between.
“Annual breast screening mammograms are life-saving. The earlier a breast cancer is found, the better the chances for a full recovery,” says Dr. Deborah Guilbaud, MD., Radiologist at the Women’s Center at Broward Health Coral Springs. “Here at the Broward Health Coral Springs, we pride ourselves in being able to offer women the latest in breast imaging for the best outcomes.”
The community relies on organizations like Not My Daughter… Find A Cure Now! to raise awareness and encourage women to take preventative measures for their breast health. “Broward Health Coral Springs is so excited to work with Not My Daughter in the fight against breast cancer,” says Melissa Leamon, Chief Nursing Officer from Broward Health Coral Springs. “This fight is not just for women who know someone with breast cancer, but a fight to protect all women.”
Smith is eager to have Not My Daughter… Find A Cure Now! on board with their initiative. “I love what they’re doing for our community. As breast cancer can be mitigated through early detection, they’re out there on the frontlines in our community, raising awareness and making an incredible difference.”
Despite the challenges of COVID-19, Not My Daughter… Find A Cure Now! has not slowed down. “We’re riding this wave of the pandemic and continuing to raise money for the cause,” says Denyse Hostig, breast cancer survivor and founder and president of Not My Daughter… Find A Cure Now! “Breast cancer hasn’t taken a break, so neither are we.”
Denyse highlights the importance of patient support and references Not My Daughter… Find A Cure Now!’s patient support services center at the University of Miami Campus in Plantation, where ancillary services are available to breast cancer patients and survivors alike. Denyse’s vision is that this new relationship will foster the development of a similar center at Broward Health Coral Springs’ Women’s Center and across Broward County.
The mission of Broward Health is to provide quality health care to the people we serve, and support the needs of all physicians and employees.
