OSF encourages getting a life-saving mammogram during Breast Cancer Awareness Month

MENDOTA - Early detection is one of the most effective weapons in the fight against breast cancer. OSF HealthCare wants to make sure every woman, who is 40 and older or is at high-risk for breast cancer, is getting a regular mammogram.

OSF HealthCare Saint Paul Medical Center has completed over 1,500 mammograms in the last 12 months. We want to get that number up to 2,000 by the end of October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Through the month, the medical center will be bathed in pink spotlights to shine a light on the community’s commitment to fighting breast cancer. As a bonus, every woman who gets a mammogram at OSF HealthCare through October will receive a free packable tote (while supplies last).

Schedule an appointment at OSF HealthCare Saint Paul Medical Center in Mendota by calling (815) 538-7206. When you do, you will be entered to win a $100 gift card to head Hunter Salon and Day Spa.
