Cancer Connection sponsors free breast cancer screenings

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) During Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, the Genesee County Cancer Connection is sponsoring free breast cancer screenings for women in the county.
Here are the dates and times of the screenings:

Monday, Oct. 11
6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Great Lakes Cancer Institute - McLaren
4100 Beecher Road, Flint

Tuesday, Oct. 19
6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Genesys Hurley Cancer Institute
302 Kensington Avenue, Flint

Screenings are on a walk-in basis only. No appointments are accepted. A physician will conduct the free breast exam. If women need a mammogram, arrangements will be made to obtain one for free at a later date.

For more information on the free breast cancer screenings, call the Genesee County Cancer Connection at 810-766-8898.

Early detection of breast cancer, through monthly breast self-exams, and yearly mammograms after age 40, offers the best chance for survival. Ninety six percent of women who are identified in the early stages of breast cancer and treated promptly will be cancer-free after five years.

The Genesee County Cancer Connection also sponsors free prostate cancer screenings every year. This year's screenings will take place Tuesday, Sept. 14 and Wednesday, Sept. 29 at Great Lakes Cancer Institute on Beecher Road in Flint; and Thursday, Sept. 16 and Tuesday, Sept. 21 at Genesys Hurley Cancer Institute on Kensington Avenue in Flint. Walk-in times are 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. No appointments are accepted. If you have questions about the prostate cancer screenings, call the Genesee County Cancer Connection at 810-766-8898.

The Genesee County Cancer Connection is comprised of Genesys Health System, Hurley Medical Center, McLaren Regional Medical Center and other community organizations who work together to conduct cancer screenings, research and educational programs to help fight cancer.
