Breast Cancer Survivor Sheryl Crow and the Pink Lotus Breast Center Announce Opening of the Sheryl Crow Imaging Center
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Aug. 24 /PRNewswire/ — Breast cancer survivor Sheryl Crow and the Pink Lotus Breast Center today announced the grand opening of the Sheryl Crow Imaging Center, a state of the art breast imaging center featuring the latest advancements in digital screening and diagnostic imaging technologies.
Located in Los Angeles, the Sheryl Crow Imaging Center is part of the Pink Lotus Breast Center, a comprehensive and integrative breast center exclusively dedicated to the prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.
“Joining forces with the Pink Lotus Breast Center has provided me with a wonderful platform to create awareness and encourage the millions of American women over 40 to get their annual mammogram,” says the singer and songwriter. “Detecting breast cancer early is a woman’s best chance at survival, and digital full-field mammography is the gold standard of early detection.”
Diagnosed with the disease in 2006 after a routine mammogram, the nine-time Grammy winner received her surgical treatment from Dr. Kristi Funk, a renowned breast cancer surgeon and founder of the Pink Lotus Breast Center, the first breast center of its kind in the United States.
“Providing women with the most comprehensive and integrative breast care possible has been our organization’s mission from the start,” says Dr. Funk. “The Sheryl Crow Imaging Center is an essential component of every breast center we build, and we look forward to bringing our unique approach to breast health to more women as the Pink Lotus Breast Center expands to other parts of the country.”
Women who receive their mammogram at the Sheryl Crow Imaging Center have immediate access to a health system that was created and optimized specifically for the treatment of breast diseases. Every woman has a variety of additional on-site options to take control of her breast health, including clinical breast exams, diagnostic biopsies, genetic testing, surgery, radiation, nutrition, Chinese medicine, and additional ancillary services designed to guide each woman through the entire spectrum of her cancer treatment in one single location.
