Chances are you or someone you know will develop breast cancer, the most common cancer among women in the United States.
In fact, one in eight women will be diagnosed with it, according to the American Cancer Society. The subject hits close to home, too, with Ohio ranking sixth in the nation for newly diagnosed cases.
At the MetroHealth Cancer Care Center, we believe every life is worth fighting for, in our hospital and in our communities.
Through various community outreach programs, support groups, and public education events, it's our mission to bring health care services and information to communities where they are needed most.
Our bilingual staff provides expertise, compassion,
and a dedication to helping patients navigate the
health care system to get the treatment they need.

- The earlier the breast cancer is found, the greater the chance of survival.
