Mother's Day Mammogram Event is May 10 at Highland Breast Imaging
Wednesday, April 30, 2014
Women always seem to put their family members’ health ahead of their own needs, but this Mother’s Day can be a different story: Highland Breast Imaging
, in conjunction with the Breast Cancer Coalition and the Cancer Services Program of Monroe County, is asking women to put themselves first for a change and take an important step for their health by getting a mammogram if they’re over 40 and due for a screening.
Highland Breast Imaging will offer free mammograms to women 40 and older who do not have insurance, and provide appointments to insured women who want a convenient Saturday morning appointment. In honor of Mother’s Day, the event runs from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 10 at Highland Breast Imaging, 500 Red Creek Drive, Suite 130. Appointments are required and can be made at (585) 487-3304 or (585) 487-3305.
The Highland Breast Imaging Center is dedicated to helping women meet their health care needs. It has been offering free mammograms for the past nine years and has served hundreds of women who may not have been screened otherwise.
A Reiki practitioner will be on hand to give 10-minute Reiki sessions. Parking is free; refreshments and music will be provided to treat attendees to a relaxing experience.
Women who cannot make the screening are encouraged to schedule an appointment for a different day.
