“Congenital Heart Disease Awareness Week”

Dudley's Home Healthcare - Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) Awareness Week is February 7-14, 2013.

Congenital Heart Disease is considered to be the most common birth defect, and is a leading cause of birth defect related deaths worldwide.

Despite the fact that CHD affects approximately 1.8 million families in the U.S., a relatively small amount of funding is currently available for parent/patient educational services, research, and support.

By sharing our experiences and providing information, we hope to raise public awareness about conditions that affect approximately 40,000 babies each year in the United States alone.

It is our sincere hope that efforts to educate the public will result in improved early diagnosis, additional funding for support and educational services, scientific research, and access to quality of care for our children and adults.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Dudley's Home Healthcare - Friday, October 26, 2012

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with Breast Cancer in their lifetime so if you have not been diagnosed chances are you probably know someone who has. Here at Dudley’s Home Health, our director of Nursing, Chasney, knows first-hand what it’s like to have loved ones fight this horrible disease.

“I understand the importance of educating others about breast cancer more so now than ever before. I have worked in the nursing field for almost 20 years, but when it hits close to home you can never be prepared for the roller coaster of events and emotions surrounding this illness. I am very proud that Dudley’s Home Health takes such an active role in supporting the American Cancer Society and educating our community. Early detection is such a crucial part of winning the war on breast cancer. I, myself, have been receiving yearly mammograms since the age of 33. The National Cancer Institute recommends women 40 and older get mammograms annually unless they are at a higher risk. Also, it is extremely important to do a monthly self-breast exam. The best time to do this is one week after your period. I have witnessed the devastation that comes with a breast cancer diagnosis as well as the hope and joy it can bring to a family watching their loved one fight to beat it and become a member of the ever-growing survivor’s club!”–Chasney

Detecting Breast Cancer in its early stages is the best way to fight it. It is also important to make sure that you and your loved ones are educated on this disease. Remember, you are your own advocate. You are ultimately responsible for your treatment so you need to understand the disease as best you can. Working with your doctors to choose the best treatment for you is imperative on your road to recovery.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation has a free application that you can download straight to your Smart Phone or computer called “Early Detection Plan”. This is a great way to be proactive about your health and wellness.

Whether it’s you, a loved one or someone you know that has been diagnosed with Breast Cancer there are many ways that you can give back. By making donations or buying products that honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month you can contribute to finding a cure for this disease.
