Williams-Grand Canyon News

ASH FORK, Ariz. - If you missed the Flagstaff Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening day and Healthy Living Resource Fair, you have another chance to participate in one on October 31, 2012 in Ash Fork. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and as part of the month long celebration the Well Woman HealthCheck Program housed at North Country HealthCare is dedicating their October Cancer Screening Days to Breast Cancer Awareness. Mammograms will be free of charge to uninsured women who qualify for the program. Insured women that are due for their mammograms can also take advantage of this opportunity by scheduling a mammogram appointment. The screenings will be held on Oct. 31 at North Country HealthCare clinic located at 112 Park Avenue, Ash Fork.

In addition to free breast and cervical cancer screenings, we are holding a Healthy Living Resource Fair open to all community members. This FREE event is a wonderful opportunity for community members to learn about what kind of healthy resources are available to community members, win prizes, and enjoy a healthy snack. The resource fair will be held in conjunction with the screening day and will be from 8am to 2pm. Come celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month with us!

The Well Woman HealthCheck Program at North Country HealthCare educates women throughout northern Arizona and helps them receive free clinical breast exams, mammograms and Pap tests in their own communities. The purpose is to provide access to quality cancer screening services for Arizona women.

Breast Cancer is the most common form of cancer in women in the U.S., and the leading single cause of death overall in women between the ages of 40 and 55. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 4,470 new cases of breast cancer will be detected in Arizona in 2012 and 780 lives lost. Nationwide, there is a new diagnosis every three minutes and a death from breast cancer every fourteen minutes. While advances have been made in prevention, diagnosis, and treatments, early detection still affords the best opportunity for successful treatment. Mammography can often detect breast cancer at an early stage, when treatment is more effective and a cure is more likely. Numerous studies have shown that early detection with mammography saves lives and increases treatment options.

Programs such as the Well Woman HealthCheck Program help ensure that all women have access to early detection information and options. This program is funded by Arizona Department of Health Services, the Avon Foundation for Women, and the Phoenix Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Don't wait--Call today to schedule your appointment 928-213-6104.
