(Miami, Florida) During a ceremony at the Miami-Dade County Government held this morning in the Commission chambers, Poblete Tamargo Attorney, Arthur Freyre accepted a proclamation from the Miami-Dade County Board of Commissioners Chairwoman, Rebeca Sosa, on behalf of Mrs. Carla Dean, President of the Bladder Cancer Foundation of Florida.
"On behalf Bladder Cancer Society of Florida, I would like to thank Commission chair Sosa, Vice Chair Comissioner Bell, and Mayor Gimenez for signing the proclamation," Freyre said.
"Mrs. Carla Dean, President of the Bladder Cancer Society of Florida, Inc. has been a tireless advocate of this worthwhile cause. Much work remains to be done to raise awareness about this disease. We appreciate that Miami-Dade County has taken time to recognize and support the work of the Bladder Cancer Foundation of Florida," added Freyre.
July is Bladder Cancer Awareness month in the state of Florida. Over half a million Americans are already diagnosed. There will be 73,000 people diagnosed each year. Bladder cancer has a recurrence rate of 50%-80%. It is one of the least tested forms of cancer and the symptoms can be confused for many other diseases.
