The Best People We Know

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and in memory of my beautiful, gorgeous sister Mimi Larimore (who passed away from Ovarian Cancer, a sometimes genetically related disease), I will be sharing any and all posts, interviews, etc. here that I give talking about my Genetic Screening for Breast/Ovarian cancers. I was privileged to be interviewed (along with my cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Lisa Cassileth) by Deb Scott of “The Best People We Know” show on Blog Talk Radio about my surgeries and the genetic testing journey… Listen by clicking on the show title or the image below…  Then, share this with anyone you know… It will save a life.

DO YOU THINK YOU OR SOMEONE YOU KNOW SHOULD BE SCREENED? 
If you know anyone who is faced with the decision to get the genetic screening for Breast or Ovarian Cancer, please tell them to consult with their doctor.Feel free to connect them with Ms. Raluca Kurz (raluca.kurz [at] cshs [dot] org) at the Cedars Sinai Genetic Counseling Center.
You can also find a genetics counselor near you:

For anyone who has the gene, or is in any stage of Breast Cancer, please contact the office of Dr. Lisa Cassileth and let them know you heard about her from either me (Lisa Jey Davis) or from The Best People We Know show. Dr. Cassileth works with my oncologic surgeon, Dr. Leslie Memsic in her office, and you’ll be in the best hands possible:

One thought on “The Best People We Know

  1. Ovarian cancer is a silent killer and is one of the deadliest threats to women’s health. The American Cancer Society says that about 20,180 American women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer this year alone. Every woman faces a risk of 1:57 risk of getting ovarian cancer in her lifetime. The symptoms of ovarian cancer are not perceptible until the cancer becomes widespread and critical, which explains why thousands of women die of this dreaded disease every year. Although ovarian cancer is treatable, in most instances, it is detected late causing complications and death to ovarian cancer patients.”
