Mammograms for A Million Moms: FREE Mammograms

Did you know that annual mammograms are recommended for women over the age of 40 and that more than half of U.S. women of screening age do not recognize how critical breast cancer screening is or do not have the means to get a mammogram regularly? Do something for your own health (or your mom's) this Mother's Day...

On Monday, May 7, women of screening age are invited to receive a FREE mammogram at PS 149 Sojourner Truth School, 41 West 117th Street, New York. In addition to a free mammogram, a health educator will be onsite to answer questions and provide educational materials to help encourage better breast health year round. The free mammograms are being funded by Fujifilm and the National Breast Cancer Foundation, and carried out by the American-Italian Cancer Foundation. Appointments are required and can be made by calling 1-800-564-6868.

For those of us who are of age but don't live in NYC, talk to your doctor about getting a mammogram today. You can also make the pledge to get a mammogram when you're 40 (or now, if you're 40 or above) on imagesofhealth.com.
