To recognize October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, San Gorgonio Memorial Hospital Associates held a Breast Cancer Awareness Walk Wednesday, October 16.
Dozens of Associates joined together, clad in pink, to walk down Wilson Street to Apex Avenue to Ramsey Street and back to Highland Springs Avenue, in support of those who are or have battled breast cancer.
The SGMH Wellness Committee, which sponsored the event, had many pink items for sale at the Women’s Center Lobby the day of the walk.
Several different SGMH departments will continue to recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month throughout the month of October. The Digital Imaging Department is offering low-cost Mammograms throughout October. Mammograms are $60 and include a free gift.
To be eligible, women must be at least 40 years of age, have no breast abnormalities (including cancer, implants, or silicone injections), and not be pregnant or breast-feeding.
To make an appointment for a low-cost Mammogram, please call 951-769-2142.
