Client News: Annual Brake for Breakfast October 6 at Foster J. Boyd, MD, Regional Cancer Center

WILMINGTON, Ohio--On Wednesday, October 6, from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m., more than 500 women are again expected to drive through the parking lot at the Foster J. Boyd, MD, Regional Cancer Center for the Third Annual Brake For Breakfast

Employees of The Boyd, decked out in pink, will team with the American Cancer Society and other volunteers to encourage women to take a few minutes out of their busy morning routine to pause and consider their risk for breast cancer.

This drive-through public event is simple and takes only a few minutes. Women drive through the parking lot at the cancer center and make three stops:

  1. To pick up a healthy to-go breakfast.

  2. To receive breast cancer awareness information, including an appointment card that explains how to schedule a mammogram at Clinton Memorial Hospital. Anyone scheduling their mammograms at CMH during the months of October or November will be entered into a drawing for a prize.

  3. To receive some free takeaways.

A screening mammogram can be scheduled, without a physician’s referral, by patients who are 35 years of age or older. Patients must be symptom free, not pregnant or breast feeding. This exam is considered a routine screening procedure and an appointment can be made by calling Clinton Memorial Hospital at (937) 382-9595.
