“Breast cancer affects our mothers, sisters, daughters, friends and ourselves,” said Jolene Albaugh, vice president/chief nursing officer of Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital. “As a community, we need to stand together to fight this disease, not just during Breast Cancer Awareness Month but every day.”
