An individual is considered a cancer survivor from the time of cancer diagnosis through the balance of her life-- and breast cancer survivors are on the rise.

Ashley Mitchell, survivorship program manager with Mercy Health and Cancer and Hematology Centers of Western Michigan is here to discuss survivorship.

As the only centers of their kind in West Michigan, Mercy Health Comprehensive Breast Centers (located in both Grand Rapids and Muskegon) deliver prompt, personal, specialized care for all aspects of breast health.

Here, we focus on total breast health — from screening mammograms and lifetime cancer risk analysis to, when necessary, the latest surgical procedures and treatments.
