Touchette Regional Hospital (TRH) announced today that it will host its 4th Annual Mammothon Breast Cancer Screening. The three-day event will be held Thursday, Oct. 19 to Saturday, Oct. 21 at Touchette Regional Hospital, 5900 Bond Ave., in Centreville, Ill.
The event will occur from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on both Thursday and Friday, and from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday. Please schedule your mammogram in advance by calling (618) 332-6130.
Women who come out to the Mammothon will have an opportunity to receive a mammogram as part of Touchette’s START NOW Breast Cancer Awareness program. No woman will be turned away due to inability to pay; financial assistance will be available to women who need help with co-pays or are uninsured.
“Your first step to better breast health is education and early detection,” said Debra Custer, START NOW program manager and treatment navigator. “This program allows us to teach women the critical importance of breast cancer screenings that could end up saving their lives.”
The START NOW program is funded by Susan G. Komen Missouri and the Avon Breast Health Outreach Program offering breast health services to women in Madison, St. Clair, and Clinton counties. For more information about the Mammothon, please call (618) 332-6130. To learn more about START NOW Breast Cancer Awareness Services, visit www.touchette.org.
