October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

We at CrossMedia want to celebrate the courageous women who have fought this battle and many who continue to fight it today. We also want to encourage ladies everywhere to get screened, do self-examinations, pay attention to your bodies and seek help as soon as you notice anything that is out of the ordinary. We love you and wish nothing but the best of health, happiness and prosperity!

How You Can Help

Barbados Cancer Society Breast Screening Programme!

Screening For Early Detection

Early detection saves lives

Screening uses tests and exams to find a disease before it becomes symptomatic. The earlier cancer in the breast is detected the better the prognosis!

How Often Should I Get Tested?

The American Cancer Society recommends the following testing frequencies –

Women between 40 and 44

have the option to start screening with a mammogram every year.

Women 45 to 54

should get mammograms every year.

Women 55 and older

can switch to screening every other year, or they can continue yearly screenings

Screening should continue as long as a woman is in good health and is expected to live at least 10 more years.

Screening Providers

In Loving Memory

This year we honour the memory of Agnes Simon. Agnes is the late aunt of a CrossMedia team member. Diagnosed with Breast Cancer at the age of 30. Agnes had a mastectomy and was able to enjoy 8 years with friends and family before passing at the age of 38.

Forever loved and remembered by her brothers and sisters – Lauchland, Catherine, Charlie, Viola, Veronica and Maria, and by other family and friends.

This is an initiative of CrossMedia LLC in the United States and our sister company CrossMedia Inc. in Barbados.

We thank all our clients who participated in our efforts to bring awareness to this cause!
