It’s important to have regular mammograms for women ages 40 or more. Early breast cancer detection can increase survival rates.

St. Claire Regional and Susan B. Komen continue to have a limited number of free mammograms thru March 31, 2015. The mammograms will be given out on a first- come, first-serve basis and provided at no cost at St. Claire Regional Women’s Imaging and Aesthetics. 

Participants must be uninsured or underinsured, 40 years or older and have not had a mammogram within the last year or had a lump identified during a clinical exam.

While there are no proven methods of preventing breast cancer, finding and treating it in its earliest stages can lead to survival. 

The three most important recommendations for early detection and survival of breast cancer are to do monthly self-breast exams, have annual physical exams by your health care provider and do yearly mammograms starting at age 40.

For more information about mammogram screenings or to schedule an appointment for a free mammogram from St. Claire Regional, contact Risa Elam at: 606.783.6760.
