FREE Face, Scalp & Neck Skin Cancer Screenings
December 11th at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center
Dr. Paige E. Bundrick, Assistant Professor in the Department of Otolaryngology at LSU Health Shreveport, will be preforming FREE Face, Scalp, and Neck skin cancer screenings on Monday, December 11th from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. Screenings will take place on the third floor at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center, located at 1501 Kings Highway.
"Even a small skin cancer on the face can lead to life-changing scarring and destruction, particularly if they involve delicate areas like the eyelids, nose and lips,” said Dr. Bundrick. “Early detection is critical to allow a facial plastic reconstructive surgeon to treat these lesions with surgical techniques to restore functionality in cosmetically pleasing ways."
If you have a lump, bump, skin discoloration or scaly areas of the skin in these areas which has failed to improve, making an appointment is encouraged. For more information or to make a screening appointment, please call Feist-Weiller at (318) 675-6262. Walk-ins will be welcome.

Sickle Cell Group Featured in National Magazine
Feist-Weiller Cancer Center would like to congratulate Ron Nierman, LPC, and the Sickle Cell Disease support group for being featured in The Voice, a quarterly magazine published by the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America.
The article features the support group members, along with their popular project, The Healing Power of Music. The project was started with the help of Alligator Records and Mavis Staples, a recording artist whose 2004 album "Have a Little Faith" became an inspiration to group members.
Music of other genres has been added, and group members have offered their own musical talents at meetings and luncheons! The healing power of music helps patients relax during treatments and at home. Group members are given CDs when they attend support group meetings.
The Sickle Cell Support Group meets every Monday at noon at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center's Bakowski Center for Learning in the first floor lobby. If you or someone you know may be interested in the support groups at FWCC, please contact Ron Nierman by phone at (318) 470-6180 or by email; Jackie Walton by phone (318) 813-1405 or email; or Jo Ann Stewart by phone at (318) 813-1409 or by email.
