The American Cancer Society recommends women ages 40 and older have a mammogram and clinical breast exam every year. To encourage participation, we throw a mammogram party every October in partnership with KAFE, WECU, the Peacehealth Cancer Center, and Walton Beverage.
This year's party is scheduled for 9 a.m. on Friday, October 17th, at Mt. Baker Imaging (4029 Northwest Ave., Bellingham). The event raises awareness of breast cancer and reminds women to get their annual mammograms. KAFE will broadcast live from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., focusing on awareness and advocacy during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Doctors will be on hand to answer questions about breast cancer screening and its importance.
Women who participate receive goody bags, information and the chance to get a mammogram without a prior appointment. Or they can use the party as an opportunity to set their annual screening appointments.
