A mammogram is one way to detect breast cancer early and potentially lengthen or save your life. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to the American Cancer Society, anyone over 40 years old should start annual breast cancer screening with mammograms. Barb Herdina of Door CANcer says the area is fortunate to have the facilities to provide you with the necessary and effective screenings.
Women 55 years or older should switch to mammograms every two years or continue yearly screening. Door CANcer is a locally run and operated charity that has helped hundreds of individuals battling cancer for over 20 years. DoorCANcer can help families facing financial challenges during a medical crisis by paying for some of their everyday expenses.
