TV News Reporter’s Breast Cancer Story Highlights Importance of Early Detection
Every now and then, Lexington Medical Center has the opportunity to share the stories of our patients with our community. One of them is Mary Nguyen Bright, who is receiving treatment for breast cancer at our hospital. Mary has undergone chemotherapy, surgery and now radiation at Lexington Medical Cancer Center.
You may recognize her. For many years, she was a news reporter at WLTX, the CBS affiliate TV station in Columbia.
Doctors diagnosed Mary with breast cancer earlier this year, when she was just 40 years old.
She shared her story with her former WLTX colleague, news anchor Darci Strickland, at our hospital this month. During October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Mary wants women to know the importance of early detection.
At Lexington Medical Center, we believe no one should face cancer alone. It’s our fight, too. And we want to provide our patients with exceptional care that results in the best possible outcomes.
