Just Book It: Five Minutes Could Save Your Life

breast cancer screening October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and Waterloo Wellington Regional Cancer Program, in partnership with Cancer Care Ontario, has launched Just Book It: Five Minutes Could Save Your Life, a campaign that invites women to take the time to get a mammogram.

To increase screening participation, Cancer Care Ontario has chosen Wednesday, October 21 as the provincial Day of the Mammogram.  However, eligible women in Waterloo-Wellington region are encouraged to book a mammogram at any time. For more information, visit www.cancercare.on.ca/justbookit. No referral from a doctor is required.

Women aged 30 to 69 years who are at higher risk for breast cancer can also get a mammogram through the Ontario Breast Screening Program with a referral by their healthcare provider.

The Waterloo Wellington Regional Cancer Program is hosting an informative evening session called Are you at high risk for breast cancer? on Tuesday, November 3.  For details and to get your free tickets, please visit http://hrbreastcancer.eventbrite.ca.
