This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, or National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. What this month is, is an international health campaign that happens every year in October. It is organized by major breast cancer charities annually to increase awareness about the disease of breast cancer, help raise funds for research of breast cancer, to help those affected by it, and for many more educational and support services.
Here in Prescott, we have our very own Breast Care Center to help in finding breast cancer early and aid in treatment. “Health, healing, and hope – The Breast Care Center at YRMC strives to offer these to everyone who passes through our doors” (YRMC Breast Care Center). Services here include screenings, consultations, MRI, ultrasound, mammography, and so much more. For more information, you can visit Yavapai Regional Medical Center’s Breast Care Center website at the link given above.
Here at the Kathleen Yamauchi Group, Breast Cancer Awareness month now hits very close to home. Earlier this year in March, our beloved broker Kathleen Yamauchi passed away when she lost her ten year battle with breast cancer. We miss her immensely, however, we know she is in a better place and is no longer in pain, or suffering.
With the years of remission she was gifted in that ten year battle, Kathleen got to be present for the birth of three grandchildren from her daughter and son-in-law, the marriage of her son Daniel, to encourage countless of those around her with her joyful spirit and kind heart, and to establish herself as one of the best realtors Prescott had ever seen. Our lives are forever changed and touched just by knowing her, and even more so in having her love and invest in us, her team. We will never forget her and we strive every day to continue on her legacy as being one of the top real estate agencies in Prescott – one known for its class, knowledge, and determination to serve our clients with the utmost respect and integrity.
Our thoughts go out to everyone out there going through the same emotional, draining, and terrible battle that we witnessed Kathleen go through over these past years. You are loved and you are prayed for – stay strong!
