different story. This year, take time

winter, including scheduling that pesky annual mammogram screening. The best part is that this year, you can take
advantage of our annual Mother’s Day Mammothon to schedule your appointment and

One in eight women will develop breast cancer in her
lifetime. Yearly mammography screenings and monthly breast self-exams are the
best early detection tools. The American Cancer Society recommends that women
40 and older get a mammogram every year.

might consider giving his wife, mother, sister or daughter the gift of peace of
mind or even life, a mammogram.
