Liverpool Businesses Spread The Message:
“Get A Mammogram”!
 
 
During October, “Breast Cancer Awareness Month” over 70 Liverpool area businesses are joining together to raise awareness about the availability of free mammograms for women who do not have health insurance. Liverpool businesses are sharing information with their patrons about the importance of getting routine mammograms and about free mammogram screening. Look around Liverpool this month and you will be reminded to get a mammogram!
 
This initiative is sponsored by the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, the Onondaga County Cancer Services Program (CSP) Partnership, and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The goal is to help ensure women get a life saving mammogram, especially women who do not have health insurance and thereby, are less likely to access regular screenings. Mammograms will be provided at all major mammography sites across Onondaga County, including mammography providers in Liverpool. 
 
We all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer. Although, one in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, the good news is that when diagnosed in the early stages, breast cancer survival rates increase. Working together, communities in Onondaga County can make a difference by increasing awareness and encouraging screening for breast cancer.
 
For more information about this initiative or about obtaining a free mammogram, call the Onondaga County Cancer Services Program Partnership at 435-3653 or visit online at www.ongov.net/health
