Hickory – “Early detection is the best tool in the fight against breast cancer,” says Kim Sherrill, R.N.  She will speak at the general meeting of the Newcomers of Catawba Valley on Wednesday, June 14 at 10:30am at Hickory Regional Airport, 3101 9th Ave. Dr., NW.  The public is invited and welcome to attend.

BreastCancerSherrill is breast health navigator at Frye Regional Medical Center.  She reports that one of eight women will develop breast cancer, and works with patients and their physicians from diagnosis through treatment.  Her talk will also address advances in breast cancer treatment.

Newcomers of Catawba Valley (NCV) is primarily a social organization that enables new and long-time residents of the region to meet, make friends and participate in a variety of activities, including support of area charities and service programs.  The club is made up of men and women and does not limit how long a member may belong.

Monthly general meetings are usually held at the Hickory Regional Airport at 10:30 a.m. on the second Wednesday of every month.  Variations in that schedule as well as the calendar of activities and special events are posted on the NCV website.  For more information visit www.newcomersofcv.com.
