Throughout October, 96.1 Mix 96 and Genesis Health are reminding women just how important it is to get their annual mammogram.
The chance of a woman developing invasive breast cancer at some point in her life is about one in eight, but thanks to early detection and improved treatment, the survival rates are at all-time highs for all stages of breast cancers.
This month, we'll have information on breast health, interviews with experts in the field, and a link to schedule your mammogram! From Genesis Health, and Mix 96.
It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month on MIX 96, and Debbie McFadden talked with Kim Turner, Research Nurse, OCN, at Genesis Health Systems, about breast cancer clinical trials being done here in the Quad Cities. If you have questions for Kim, call her at: 563-421-1908 or 1-888-532-7140.
