Statistics claim that around 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. For the staff of Family Practice Associates of Easley (FPAE), this statistic became 1 in 4 women. Within the last 12 years, breast cancer has affected a total of 8 women within the office family.
Giovannia Stone is one of the eight women. When a member of the Family Practice Associates of Easley is diagnosed with breast cancer, it affects everyone. The people in this practice consider themselves more than just colleagues; they consider themselves as a family. They support one another throughout the diagnosis, treatment and recovery and affectionately call themselves the Pink Sisters who took on cancer, fought like girls and won!
