Mother’s Day Breakfast at MedStar Franklin Square

Mother's Day Breakfast at MedStar Franklin Square

  • You’ve cared for others all of your life...now, it’s time to take care of yourself.

    Let the MedStar Health Cancer Network help determine if you might be at an increased risk for developing cancer.

    As women get older, the risk of getting certain cancers increases. That’s why it’s important to understand the risks and get regular screenings to find cancer early, when it is easier to treat. At the MedStar Health Cancer Network, we are committed to helping you safeguard your health.

    So we hope you’ll join us on Saturday, May 9, to discuss risk factors, prevention and the latest advances in treatment with some of our experts. We’ll treat you to a nutritious breakfast and a seated massage, and arm you with the important health information you need to take better care of yourself. Plus, it’s FREE.
