Thousands of area women rely on Skaggs Center for Women’s Health for routine digital mammograms every year. “Starting at 40 years-old, a woman should get a baseline mammogram,” explains Tracey Williams, Director of Skaggs Women’s Services. “This way, changes over the years can be identified at routine exams and addressed immediately.”
October is breast cancer awareness month and Skaggs has a great way for you to show your support of preventing this disease through early detection. “We have two different designs of t-shirts for sale this year,” says Williams. “All proceeds benefit Skaggs Foundation, which helps pay for programs, services and equipment at the facility, including the digital mammogram machines.”
The first t-shirt sale will be Thursday, October 18, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Skaggs Café. Both styles are $20 each. The first shirt is a women’s cut with silver letters and will be offered in sizes S-2X. The second shirt is a unisex shirt and will be offered in sizes S-4XL. Cash and check only please.
Founded in 2002, Skaggs Foundation was established to help support Skaggs Regional Medical Center by encouraging and engaging community members in philanthropy. As today’s healthcare costs continue to climb and our population ages, there are many ways community members can make a huge difference in the lives of those we serve.
