Breast Cancer Resource Center
One woman in eight is given a breast cancer diagnosis at some point in her lifetime. And in rural areas, it's not always easy or convenient to find state-of-the-art equipment or expert services. Until now.
Currently, over 65 percent of the breast cancer patients at Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center are from rural areas.
