Mammothon offers screenings at Indianapolis hospital Oct. 15

INDIANAPOLIS -- With early detection, diagnosis and treatment options, more patients are beating breast cancer, yet many women don’t seek annual mammography screenings for a variety of reasons.

That’s why Franciscan St. Francis Health Cancer Center is hosting its annual Mammothon at its Indianapolis hospital (8111 S. Emerson Ave.) from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 16.

Mammograms are by appointment only and can be made by calling 317-528-8555.

The event also offers:
·        free non-fasting cholesterol screenings from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m.
·        free bone density screenings
·        door prizes
·        refreshments

Personalities from local radio station B105.7 FM also will be hand, providing live coverage of Mammothon activities.

Mammogram screenings also can be arranged at Franciscan St. Francis Health-Carmel (12188-B N. Meridian St.) throughout October. To make an appointment, call 317-528-8555.
