30-Year Study Affirms Value of Mammograms

Here is an article about the benefits of mammograms. It reports that researchers who tracked breast cancer patients over three decades found that the screening reduces deaths by 30 percent. By anyone's standards, that's significant.

For women turning 40 this year, Fauquier Health will say Happy Birthday with a free screening mammogram. Get an order from your doctor and call Fauquier Health, 540-316-5800, to schedule one now.

For those who can't afford a mammogram, you may be eligible for a grant from the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation. To learn more, call 540-316-3588.
