“Missed screenings can mean missed diagnosis which can lead to an increase in deaths,” said Making Strides, in a news release. “Now that restrictions are lifting, make that call and get those missed screenings. Covid may have stopped your work life and social life, but cancer can change your life in many more ways if not diagnosed early and treated. So do the right thing for yourself and family.
