Stand with Estela Event Offering Vouchers for Free 3D Mammograms
While we are in the middle of spooky season, we are also in the midst of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an annual campaign to increase awareness of the disease. You can find out so much about you can help spread awareness, join a support group or making a donation by checking out the official website on information for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
According to the American Cancer Society, when breast cancer is detected early, and is in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is 99%. Early detection includes doing monthly breast self-exams, and scheduling regular clinical breast exams and mammograms. Here, in El Paso, you can get a voucher for a free 3D mammogram this Saturday, October 24th!
Viva Auto Group has teamed up with The Stand With Estela Fund and Albertsons to provide free drive through flu shots and mammogram vouchers to those in the borderland without insurance. The fund will host a health fair from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 24th at Viva Ford at 5500 N. Desert Boulevard. There will be three drive-thru lanes for flu shots, those will be administered by Albertson's pharmacists and techs.
A fourth lane will provide vouchers for free 3D mammograms for the first 500 uninsured
women over 50. The women can then schedule their mammograms at University Medical Center. Early detection can help many women (and men!) fight this. Of course, it is always encouraged that women perform self breast exams at least once a month. If you're unsure of how to do so, let Buzz & Nico show you how!
