Oct 1, 2016
As part of their efforts to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett will host “Mammos ‘Til Midnight.” The event will take place at Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett on October 20. Extended appointment hours will be available from 4:00 p.m. until midnight for women to receive their annual screening mammogram. The relaxing environment will include wine, cheese and hors d’oeuvres. Appointments can be scheduled online at A physician referral is not required.

“There are times when life gets so busy that we forget to take care of our own health,” said Chris Locke, Saint Francis Hospital-Bartlett chief executive officer. “That’s why we are excited to offer Mammos ‘Til Midnight. In addition to providing women with a convenient, after-hours time for their mammogram, this event gives women the opportunity to relax and enjoy a girls’ night out.” 

According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 1 in 8 women will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. However, early detection through mammogram screenings, increased public awareness of breast cancer and improved treatments have helped reduce the rate of death from breast cancer in the United States. Mammogram screenings can detect breast cancer when it is smaller and more confined to the breast, allowing the cancer to be treated more easily.
