Breast Cancer Awareness Month Brings Free Mobile Screenings in Broome County
The influx of people wearing and promoting the color pink is hard to miss, and that's for a good reason: October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
With one in eight women being diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, the Lourdes Mobile Mammography Mobile is hitting the streets with FREE exams throughout the month.
Progressive Dental is lending their parking lots to this mobile health screening, according to WICZ's Briana Supardi.
