Kirkland Cancer Center set to host free breast cancer screening event this Saturday
JACKSON, TN (WNBJ) - The Kirkland Cancer Center in Jackson will be hosting its annual free breast cancer screening event this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The event is for women who are uninsured or under-insured. The screening will include a clinical exam by a physician and a mammogram.
The Kirkland Cancer Center explains why it is so important to get your routine breast screenings.
“In women, breast cancer is the most common cancer, behind skin cancer and one in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime,” said Carrie Ann Knox, the Community Outreach Coordinator with the Kirkland Cancer Center.
Attendees will need to register for the screening by calling 731-541-5087.
Again, the free breast cancer screening event is happening this Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Kirkland Cancer Center located at 720 West Forest Avenue in Jackson.
