The Breast Center at West Boca Diagnostic Imaging | Think Pink

October Is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

This month is the time of year that many of us think pink and plan to schedule our annual mammograms! Once again, #SoooBoca has partnered with West Boca Medical Center and The Breast Center at West Boca Diagnostic Imaging Center to share information on early detection, treatment, awareness and a new podcast interview on #SoooBoca Stories Podcast.

As a busy Realtor, mom and wife, I have to always remember to schedule my mammograms. Stop what you are doing, and make a call to your physician or breast care center and make your appointment!


Interview with Suzan Pooran

On this episode I have the pleasure of interviewing Suzan Pooran as she shares her journey of being diagnosed with breast cancer, her treatment as well as tips and information you will find to be useful and helpful.

Suzan Pooran

Suzan works at West Boca Diagnostic Imaging Center, and was diagnosed with breast cancer in September 2020. She shares her story in regard to her diagnosis, her double mastectomy and her journey having her surgery, early detection of breast cancer, working with her multi disciplinary team, radiation and chemo, recovery and tips for friends and families who want to help out.

This episode is sponsored by West Boca Medical Center & The Breast Center at West Boca Diagnostic Imaging.
