There is a lot of talk during Breast Cancer Awareness Month about all the pink we see. It’s on the news, in the stores and even on the football fields. While we’re talking about it, why not have a conversation that can really matter?
It’s likely that you know someone who has been putting off getting a mammogram. Maybe she’s busy, maybe she’s scared it will hurt or maybe she’s afraid of the results. Women have many reasons for not getting this screening exam when they should. But the reality is that it matters. It is our best tool for finding breast cancer earlier, when it’s easiest to treat.
This month, let the pink be a conversation starter. Ask your friends if they’ve gotten their mammograms. Talk to them about their concerns and encourage them to take care of themselves.
Throughout October, we’re offering women a special incentive to get their mammograms at ella health, where we provide 3D imaging shown to enhance cancer detection and reduce false positives. At Toms River, we are giving a pink rose to all patients. In Harrisburg, we have chocolate covered strawberries from Edible Arrangements.
You can request an appointment at any time using our convenient online system. Or give us a call. We will also be in the community at several events this month to make it even easier. Join us for free services and more information:
