View Full Version : OCT. 15 - NAT'L MAMMOGRAPHY DAY

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Oct. 15 is National Mammography Day, when many hospitals and health care providers offer free or discounted mammograms. Some facilities offer free or discounted exams the entire month of October.

A lot of us have so much going on with lupus that we may forget other aspects of our lives and health are just as important. So please, don't forget your mammogram!

To find out if a facility in your area is participating in the program, you can call the American Cancer Society at 1-800-ACS-2345; The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation at 1-800-462-9273; the National Alliance of Breast Cancer Organizations (NABCO) at 1-800-719-9154; the Y-Me National Breast Cancer Organization at 1-800-221-2141; or the National Cancer Institute at 1-800-4-CANCER.

Thank you for the information. You are right, many of us probably forget about the other important health issues that we should stay on top of due to our constant battle with Lupus. So, thanx for keeping us aware and informed

Peace and Blessings
