Lake County Record-Bee

In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Sutter Lakeside Hospital will provide free mammograms for uninsured women during the month of October. Statistically, one in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, and breast cancer accounts for one in three of all cancers in women.

“Mammograms for uninsured women cost $75 last year. This year, we’re proud to collaborate with the Sutter Health system to provide free mammograms to uninsured women. We want early detection to be available to all women, regardless of insurance roadblocks,” said Siri Nelson, Chief Administrative Officer of Sutter Lakeside Hospital.
