HRMC Encourages Women to Treat Yourself with Early Detection
May 06, 2019
Huron, S.D. – In celebration of moms, Huron Regional Medical Center is offering treats and a chance to win to women who call to schedule a mammogram between May 1 through May 10.
Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death in women, second to lung cancer. Early detection increases the chance of survival.
To encourage women to learn their risk for breast cancer, HRMC is offering a choice of treats to women who call to schedule a screening mammogram between May 1 and May 10. Women who make the call by May 10, will be offered their choice of a free flower, DQ Blizzard or a coffee coupon. The actual mammogram appointment can occur between May 1 and October 31, 2019.
Anyone who schedules a mammogram during the month of May will also be entered for a chance to win six seasonal floral bouquet deliveries. Women who are scheduling their first mammogram or who refer a friend will be entered for a chance to win a pampering package including a manicure, pedicure and massage.
For women worried about the cost of a mammogram, the HRMC Foundation We've Got You Covered fund, HRMC provides FREE mammograms to women in need:
- who are age 40-64
- who are under age 40 and at higher risk for cancer
- who have not had a mammogram in two years, and
- who do not have insurance/insurance does not cover
HRMC’s digital mammography uses safe, low doses of X-rays to image the inside of breasts and computer-aided detection (CAD) provides a "second read" of the mammogram by a computer to assist the radiologist in making an accurate diagnosis. HRMC's digital mammography system is fast, yet ultra-sensitive, and generally only takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete.
