Spotting breast cancer early on can save lives. That’s why we’re glad the American-Italian Cancer Foundation and Boriken Neighborhood Health Center are coordinating a no-cost mammograms and clinical breast exams provided by Multi-Diagnostic Services. On Thursday, March 1, they’ll have a mobile van at 2253 Third Avenue, New York, NY 10035. Call 1-877-628-9090 to make a mandatory appointment.
To be eligible, women must be age 40 and older, with a New York City address, and have not received a mammogram in the past 12 months. On March 1, wear a two-piece outfit, do do not use any oil, powder, deodorant, or perfume in the breast, underarm or chest area, and if you have Medicare, Medicaid or other health insurance, you must bring your card with you, though you will not be charged for the screening. If you have previous mammogram films, please bring those as they can eliminate the need for additional testing.
