You Could Qualify For A Free Mammogram

The National Breast Cancer Foundation made a $100,000 donation to The State Department of Health.  If you are uninsured, under insured, a minority, or elderly you qualify for the program that provides free mammograms with this donation. To find out if you qualify for the services call 1-800-721-7222 or visit the Mississippi Department of Health’s website at www.HealthyMS.com.  Women with a personal history of breast cancer, a family history of breast cancer, a genetic mutation known to increase risk of breast cancer (such as BRCA), and women who had radiation therapy to the chest before the age of 30 are at higher risk for breast cancer.

Women ages 40 to 44 should have the choice to start annual breast cancer screening with mammograms if they wish to do so. The risks of screening as well as the potential benefits should be considered.

Women age 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year.

Women age 55 and older should switch to mammograms every 2 years, or have the choice to continue yearly screening.

Screening should continue as long as a woman is in good health and is expected to live 10 more years or longer.

Ladies, please get your Mammogram!  It could save your life!  ~~  Patty Steele
