Established in 2007, the MaryEllen Locher Breast Center was inspired by the local television news anchor and health reporter who courageously battled breast cancer. As a result of her personal experience with cancer, MaryEllen pledged to make the breast cancer journey easier for all women. Working alongside CHI Memorial, she provided insight and inspiration for the development of a breast center that would combine the best possible medical care in an atmosphere of calm and understanding. Reducing the time between diagnosis and treatment was MaryEllen’s primary goal. Although MaryEllen ultimately lost her battle to cancer in 2005, her legacy lives on in the thousands of women whose lives have been touched by the center which bears her name.
Maurice S. Rawlings, Jr., M.D., surgical oncologist and director of the MaryEllen Locher Breast Center, discusses MaryEllen's vision for enhancing breast cancer care.
