Meet the Patients: A Breast Cancer Survivor Story

Beth Addison is a mom of two teenage girls. She was diagnosed with breast cancer one year ago after a 3-D mammogram at Lexington Medical Center.

She underwent a year of treatment that included chemotherapy at Lexington Oncology, a Lexington Medical Center physician practice.

Beth also was featured as a model in our Women’s Night Out fashion show this year. The event honors breast cancer survivors and their families, and raises money for the Campaign for Clarity, a capital campaign to expand 3-D mammography throughout our hospital’s network of care.

In this WLTX news story, she shares her journey and what she learned along the way.

Lexington Medical Center diagnoses more than 250 cases of breast cancer each year. 3-D mammography is an important tool because it can reveal cancerous tumors when they are just 1 to 2 millimeters in size. Early detection is key to treating breast cancer. Visit LexMed.com/Cancer to learn more about our hospital’s cancer program.

Our 2018 Christmas Commercial

We’re pleased to present our 2018 Christmas commercial. It focuses on acts of kindness. We filmed it at our hospital and in our community. Some of the actors are our employees.

It’s the 12th year in a row that our hospital has created and produced its own Christmas commercial. The spot opens with a doctor giving up a parking space at a crowded mall. Several acts of kindness eventually lead back to the same physician receiving a kind deed himself.

We believe it’s the perfect time of year to spread goodwill. You can watch this year’s commercial on our Facebook page or during your favorite holiday programs. Be sure to look for the familiar faces of our hospital employees and locations in our community!
