The Power of Choice: One Woman’s Breast Health Journey

Anna Jaques Hospital Breast Care Center

Nancy Jones of Salisbury will never forget December 4, 2015 at 12:04. “Everything froze – my thoughts, my emotions. I felt like I was watching a movie.”

Doctor: “How are you doing?”  

Nancy: “You tell me.”

Doctor:  “Nancy, we found cancer.”

Nancy was talking to Peter Hartmann, MD, FACS, Medical Director of the Gerrish Breast Care Center at Anna Jaques Hospital, which is affiliated with Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a Harvard Medical School Teaching Hospital.

Healthy Eating Habits for Your Children

Things To Do at Anna Jaques Hospital, Newburyport, Boston's North Shore

The vegetable your child tolerates today may be old news tomorrow. Their eating habits are unpredictable and that’s normal. Your eating habits and the way you speak about food, however, are major influences in forming their life-long habits.

It’s important to teach children that you eat to fuel your body and your brain. Marit Pywell, RDN, CDE, a nutritionist at Anna Jaques Hospital, shared 7 habits that will have you feeling great while leaving a lasting impression on the kids. Prepare your meal schedule and the meals for your family with these tips in mind.

Be Proactive with Your Breast Health, Schedule a 3D Mammogram

Anna Jaques Hospital Breast Care Center

A simple itch revealed a strange lump in Annemarie Morris’s breast. Annemarie wasn’t in the habit of performing monthly self-breast exams though she was diligent about having routine mammograms
and visiting her gynecologist. Like many women who don’t have a family history of breast cancer, she wasn’t concerned about her risk.

Though she did consult with her husband in the morning and together they decided she would call her gynecologist, Dr. Susan C. Newhouse at Women’s Health Care. Annemarie was seen the same day and scheduled for an ultrasound that afternoon. The next day, she had a mammogram and biopsy.

“All of this was completed within two days from my initial phone call,” explained Annemarie. “I didn’t worry over the weekend. I’m a pretty optimistic person. I didn’t consider that I could have a cancerous tumor.
I figured that worst case scenario it was a cyst and I may need surgery.”

When it comes down to it, women often let their health take a backseat. Routine health care needs, such as breast exams, often get lost in the crazy shuffle of caring for your families, working, managing the kids busy schedules and everything in between.

At Anna Jaques, the caregivers want to make it easy for you to stay on schedule with routine mammograms.
Early detection is critical to survival. To stay ahead of breast cancer, it is important to assess and manage your personal risk.
