Manicures and Mammograms returns to Banner Lassen
Oct. 1, 2013 — Banner Lassen Medical Center announces the sixth annual Manicures, Massages and Mammograms to recognize National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The special event will offer free manicures, free chair massages, affordable screening mammograms, free gift baskets to all who attend, educational health information and refreshments. Participants also will be entered into a free drawing for prizes.
This free event takes place Friday, Oct. 4, Friday, Oct. 11, Saturday, Oct. 19 and Friday, Oct. 25 at Banner Lassen Medical Center, 1800 Spring Ridge Drive in Susanville. Appointments are required and may be made by calling 252-2065.
Women do not need a physician’s order to have a screening mammogram. Most insurance covers the cost of the screening. Women who can’t afford the screening should ask about financial assistance programs.
The American Cancer Society recommends women older than the age of 40 have a screening mammogram done yearly. Women who have a family history of breast cancer should be screened earlier. If they have concerns about whether they should have a mammogram or how frequently, they should speak with their primary care provider.
For more information, call 252-2121.
