AdventHealth Ocala Lights Up for Cancer

Oct 08, 2019 at 07:28 pm by Staff

AdventHealth Ocala is going pink to help raise awareness and provide education for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The hospital will be lit pink for the month of October to honor patients diagnosed with breast cancer. Additionally, the hospital is the Survivor Sponsor of the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk later in the month and will host a free Breast Health Symposium to educate the community on the latest in diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer.


Current statistics show 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. AdventHealth is focused on early detection, diagnosis and treatment of all women who need care. The hospital is currently the only facility in Marion County offering SCOUT® technology for patients with small breast cancer tumors. The technology replaces the traditional process of marking extremely small tumors with a hooked wire inserted into the breast. SCOUT® allows physicians to precisely locate and remove cancerous tissue during a lumpectomy or surgical biopsy without a wire accidentally being moved or dislodged prior to a procedure.
