Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosed among US women and is the second leading cause of death among women after lung cancer. Approximately 1 in 8 women (13%) in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. The American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer has granted the cancer program at OSF Saint Anthony’s Moeller Cancer Center a three-year accreditation. The CoC accreditation is a mark of excellence and quality care. The program provides the framework for OSF Moeller Cancer Center to improve its quality of patient care through various cancer-related programs that focus on the full spectrum of cancer care, including prevention, early diagnosis, cancer staging, optimal treatment, rehabilitation, life-long follow-up for recurrent disease and end-of-life care.
