Free mammograms for local women

Mammogram clinic for uninsured women in Butte, Glenn counties

For the fourth year in a row, the Bidwell Rancho chapter of Soroptimist International will host Operation Mammogram, which provides no-cost mammograms for local women who cannot afford an exam.

Uninsured women 40 years old and older who cannot otherwise afford the cost are welcome to receive a free mammogram screening at North State Imaging (1702 Esplanade) on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 8 a.m. to noon. Women must live in Butte or Glenn counties and be without signs or symptoms of breast disease. No appointment is necessary.

Nearly 200 women were screened at last year’s event, three of whom turned up positive for breast cancer.
