Kitty Shildt to Address Nutrition at Breast Cancer Meeting

Rayma Scalzo

We are so pleased to let you know that Kitty Shildt, a registered dietician, will be speaking to our breast cancer discussion group meeting on Jan. 23, at 10 a.m. in the Capri Room at the Tuscany Clubhouse. Kitty received her dietetics degree and her Master of Nutritional Science degree at Oklahoma State University. Her past work experience includes working with cancer patients from 1999 to 2004 at Cancer Care Associates of Tulsa. She also did nutrition education of the Senior Nutrition Program in Tulsa County and private counseling in weight management and sports and fitness nutrition. Kitty will be giving an update on general nutrition.

Kitty is married to Dr. Rich Shildt, a retired medical oncologist. Both are residents of PebbleCreek. They are a fabulous couple and have done so much for the Breast Cancer Support Group and the community. We are so pleased that Dr. Shildt will also be present at our meeting to answer questions you may have.

The purpose of our group is to provide support through sharing of common experiences and knowledge and to let you know you’re not alone. If you’ve found a breast lump or mass and don’t know what to do, please call us. If you are facing possible surgery, recovering from surgery, thinking about reconstruction, or just need someone to talk to, please call us. If you are a long-term survivor, we’d like to have you join us, too. Your experience and knowledge can help newly diagnosed members get through their treatment. You may also learn a few things along the way that you might find helpful.

A special gift may be waiting for you!

It is so important that we hear from any residents who have treatment pending as we have a special pillow, made by the PebbleCreek Quilters, that we would like to give to you. The ladies who have used the pillows say that they offer so much comfort immediately following surgery or reconstruction. If you call us, we want you to know the conversation will be kept confidential. You do not have to become a member to receive one so please don’t miss out on this wonderful gift. A special thanks to the quilters for making this gift possible.

This is a meeting you don’t want to miss! How lucky we are to have both Dr. Shildt and Kitty at our meeting. Also please plan on joining us for lunch at Toscana’s following the meeting to get to know others going through the same journey.
