BHHS Florida Network Supports Breast Cancer Awareness

Breast Cancer Awareness

What is Breast Cancer:

Cancer is a group of diseases that cause cells in the body to change and grow out of control. Breast cancer begins in the breast tissue that is made up of glands for milk production, called lobules and the ducts that connect the lobules. The remainder of the breast is made up of fatty connective and lymphatic tissue.

What are the Signs and Symptoms of Breast Cancer:

Breast cancer typically produces no symptoms when the tumor is small and most easily cured. Therefore it is very important for women to follow recommended screening guidelines for detecting breast cancer at an early stage.

The Importance of Finding Breast Cancer Early:
Most doctors feel that early detection tests for breast cancer save thousands of lives each year, and that many more lives could be saved if even more women and their health care providers took advantage of these tests. Following the American Cancer Society’s guidelines for the early detection of breast cancer improves the chances that breast cancer can be diagnosed at an early stage and treated successfully.

  • Yearly mammograms are recommended starting at age 40 and continuing for as long as a woman is in good health.
  • Clinical breast exam (CBE) about every 3 years for women in their 20s and 30s and every year for women 40 and over.
  • Women should know how their breasts normally look and feel and report any breast change promptly to their health care provider. Breast self-exam (BSE) is an option for women starting in their 20s.

Some women – because of their family history, a genetic tendency, or certain other factors – should be screened with MRI in addition to mammograms. (The number of women who fall into this category is small: less than 2% of all the women in the US.) Talk with your doctor about your history and whether you should have additional tests at an earlier age.

What Happens when the Cancer has Grown:
When cancer has grown to the size it can be felt the most common physical sign is a lump that is painless. Sometimes breast cancer can spread to the underarm lymph nodes and cause a lump or swelling even before the original breast tumor is detected. If you have any persistent abnormality or changes to the breast you should be evaluated by a physician as soon as possible.

Personal and Family History:
Women as well as men with a family history of breast cancer, especially if it is a first- degree relative (mother, sister, daughter, father or brother) are at an increased risk of development breast cancer, this risk is higher if more than one first-degree relative developed breast cancer. Compared to women without a family history, risk of breast cancer is 1.8 times higher for women with one first-degree female relative who has been diagnosed nearly 3 times higher for women with two relatives and nearly 4 times higher for women with three or more relatives.

How Should a Breast Self-Exam be Performed?

1. In the Shower:
Using the pads of your fingers, move around your entire breast in a circular pattern moving from the outside to the center, checking the entire breast and armpit area. Check both breasts each month feeling for any lump, thickening, or hardened knot. Notice any changes and get lumps evaluated by your healthcare provider.

2. In Front of a Mirror:
Visually inspect your breasts with your arms at your sides. Next, raise your arms high overhead. Look for any changes in the contour, any swelling, or dimpling of the skin, or any other changes. Next, rest your palms on your hips and press firmly to flex your chest muscles. Left and right breasts will not exactly match—few women’s breasts do, so look for any dimpling, puckering, or changes, particularly on one side.

3. Lying Down
When lying down, the breast tissue spreads out evenly along the chest wall. Place a pillow under your right shoulder and your right arm behind your head. Using your left hand, move the pads of your fingers around your right breast gently in small circular motions covering the entire breast area and armpit. Use light, medium, and firm pressure. Squeeze the nipple; check for discharge and lumps. Repeat these steps for your left breast.

Points to Remember:

  • Statistics are estimates that describe trends in large numbers of people. Statistics cannot be used to predict what will actually happen to an individual.
  • Survival statistics for different cancer types, stages of cancer, age groups, or time periods can vary dramatically. People are encouraged to ask their doctor for the most appropriate statistics based on their individual medical condition.
  • As with any medical information, ask your doctor for clarification if cancer-related statistics seem unclear.

Each year Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty participates in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, this year on October 25, 2014 the company will participate again supporting the foundation American Cancer Society and Lee National Denim Day. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices St. Augustine office participates yearly in the Think Pink Event in support of breast cancer awareness.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Announces Kevin Waugaman, Managing Broker, Ponte Vedra Beach Office

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty proudly announces Kevin Waugaman as Managing Broker of the company’s Ponte Vedra Beach office. Waugaman replaces Don Cline, who has been promoted to assistant general manager for the company.

Ponte Vedra Managing Broker

“Kevin is the consummate professional and we are thrilled to welcome him to our company to lead our premier Ponte Vedra Beach office and team,” said Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty Founder, President and CEO Linda Sherrer. “Kevin’s talent and expertise brings new energy to Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices and he is a wonderful complement to our exceptional leadership team, helping us deliver the highest level of performance and service to our associates and clients.”

Prior to joining the company, Waugaman spent nine years at Premier Realty Group in Stuart, Fla., including five years as the company’s vice president of sales. While at Premier, Waugaman is credited with helping to grow the company’s business from $60 million to $120 million annually in five years.

“We are proud to add Kevin to our leadership team,” said Christy Budnick, executive vice president of residential real estate. “With a long history of success combined with exceptional skills, dedication and passion for helping others succeed, Kevin is the right person to lead our Ponte Vedra office of superstars and help position Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty for future growth and success.”

Waugaman is deeply rooted in Northeast Florida and Berkshire Hathaway. His career began in Jacksonville with the financial services firm, Merrill Lynch, where his responsibilities included mortgage origination, asset management and technology implementation before his promotion to the firm’s leadership team for the Florida region.

Waugaman is a graduate of Elon University where he earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis on finance. During his college years, Waugaman received a book from his father about Berkshire’s founder: “Buffett, The Making of an American Capitalist.” While at Elon, he wrote a paper about the book that examined how to properly align the interests of salespeople with those of their clients, a concept that has remained with him ever since.

During the time he previously lived in Ponte Vedra Beach, Waugaman attended and played basketball at Jacksonville’s Episcopal High School. Waugaman and his wife, Jessica, recently relocated to Ponte Vedra to be closer to family and friends, and so that he could join Northeast Florida’s leading real estate firm.

“I chose to align with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Network Realty because of its dynamic culture and reputation,” Waugaman said. “I have visited and studied many offices and business models over the years, and I recognize the value and benefits of this successful company.
