Fight Like A Girl Against Breast Cancer
GILLETTE, WY - Nurses from the Heptner Cancer Center at Campbell County Health will be stationed at the Gillette Walmart Monday, October 3 from 9 am-3 pm to provide education and information on breast and testicular cancer. Free breast and testicular self-exam shower cards will be given out to raise awareness of these diseases during October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Participants can register for a free mammogram to be given away.
"The survival rates for breast cancer are good when it is detected in the early stages," said Deb Lubkeman, Supervisor of the Oncology Unit and registered nurse. "We also wanted to focus on testicular cancer because it is often diagnosed in men in their 20's.
The Heptner Cancer Center provides both medical and radiation oncology services to Campbell County and the surrounding region. More information is available at www.ccmh.net.
All those who attend will receive a free breast/testicular self-exam card to hang in their shower, and have a chance to win a free mammogram.
