Noble Hospital’s Center for Comprehensive Breast Health encompasses aspects of women’s health from mammograms and bone density testing to lumpectomies and cancer treatments. The Center features a Complimentary Medicine therapy room offering massage, Reiki, and other alternative treatments for those going through cancer treatments and recovery.
In a new partnership with the YMCA of Greater Westfield, the Center also offers a healthy living and exercise program. Noble Hospital has a partnership with Hartford Hospital to treat early breast cancer quickly with a procedure called Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation that takes a period of 5 days instead of many weeks. Money raised at this fundraiser may help patients in any of these programs receive the treatment they need but may not be able to afford.
