Sun Sentinel–Caridad Center educates uninsured women about breast cancer

October 9, 2013

Prematie Jebodh, 58, a Boynton Beach stay-at-home mother, has been a patient at the Caridad Health Center for 15 years.

Suffering from diabetes and other ailments, Jebodh, who lives with her husband and son, is uninsured and recently was diagnosed with breast cancer.

When she felt a lump in her breast, Caridad referred her to JFK Medical Center for a mammogram and when that showed a cancerous lump, Jebodh had surgery performed by one of Caridad’s surgeons at no cost to her.
