Free Mammogram Screening - Saturday, October 6th at Eastern Radiology in Kinston
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 230,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer were diagnosed in 2011 among women as well as an estimated 57,650 additional cases of in situ breast cancer. Both men and women can have a breast cancer diagnosis. Advances in breast cancer care and treatment correlate to excellent survival rates today but early detection is still an important factor in the achievement of best outcomes for this disease. The Lenoir Memorial Hospital and Foundation, along with Cherry Energy and BP, have teamed up this year to increase breast cancer awareness in our community.
The free mammogram screening on October 6th provides a screening mammogram for qualifying women who may not have been able to afford a mammogram. Look for the pink Cherry Energy truck at this event at Eastern Radiology in Kinston as they Fuel the Fight!
