Despite a severe economic blow from Covid-19, the local chapter of the George Papanicolaou Group will be holding an intensive cancer prevention campaign throughout the month of October. Chapter president Carmen Morales Valles detailed this includes the goal of providing at least 100 free mammograms to low-income women or those with special needs.
The campaign, held precisely during World Breast Cancer Month, invites women to visit one of the five daily sessions at the clinic Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Breast Cancer Awareness month, detailed Morales Valles, aims to increase awareness and support for early detection and palliative care.
Morales Valles urges all women from the age 35 and on, or at a reproductive age, to visit the George Papanicolaou Group where they are constantly doing cancer tests for any patient who requests it, stating “because while there is life there is hope”.
Women interested in obtaining a mammogram can ask for information at the following number: 638 102 0459 or visit the George Papanicolaou Group Facebook site.
