You may be eligible for a free mammogram at an SSM facility near you. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and is a great time for women to get their yearly mammogram. You or someone you know may be eligible for a free screening mammogram at a SSM facility through a grant from Susan G. Komen for the Cure or Show Me Healthy Women. SSM Breast Care’s Empowering and Engaging Women program offers a free screening mammogram for women who:
• Are age 40 or older;
• Have never had a mammogram or have not had a mammogram in more than 13 months;
• AND who have no insurance or whose insurance does not cover mammograms.
The program, which is available year-round, also offers clinical breast exams and breast health education.
