Logansport Memorial Hospital offers free breast screens
The Logansport Memorial Hospital (LMH) Making Strides Breast Screening Program is focused on the importance of early detection in breast cancer. The initiative serves low-income, uninsured and/or underinsured Cass County women by offering free breast screens.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, LMH encourages all age- appropriate women to get their annual mammogram. Women interested in scheduling a free breast screen can call Logansport Memorial Hospital Central Scheduling at (574) 753-1488.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, after skin cancer. One in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of their lifetime. Early detection is the best prevention for breast cancer.
The Free Breast Screens are funded through a competitively awarded grant to Logansport Memorial Hospital by the Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust (IBCAT). To learn more about our services, visit http://www.logansportmemorial.org/pages/Breast-Center.
