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