Free screenings for breast cancer

SHREVEPORT - Shreve Memorial Library Wallette Branch has teamed with St. Luke's Episcopal Medical Ministry and Susan G. Komen Foundation to offer free preventive breast cancer screenings, information and support to those affected by the disease. St. Luke’s Medical Mobile bus will be at the branch, in the parking lot, located at 363 Hearne Avenue on Monday, October 16 from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.
 
“Early detection is the key,” said Branch Manager Wyolanda Hall. “We’re encouraging ladies to be proactive and get checked.” Women 19 years and older are encouraged to participate. Present a current photo I. D., and a registered nurse will answer questions and provide a free preventive screening. 
 
According to research, breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.
