Planned Parenthood of South Florida and the Treasure Coast is offering free clinical breast exams to kick off National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In an effort to raise awareness and detection of breast cancer, the free exams will be available Friday, Sept. 28 from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Wellington Health Center (10111 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Suite 340).
“The success rate for curing breast cancer is much higher when it’s detected early,” Planned Parenthood of South Florida and the Treasure Coast CEO/President Lillian Tamayo said. “Planned Parenthood’s Free Breast Exam Day in Wellington offers women the opportunity to access lifesaving cancer screening regardless of income or access to health insurance.”
The free clinical exams are available by appointment. To schedule an exam, call (800) 551-4060. Appointments are limited, so they should be scheduled as soon as possible. For more information, visit www.ppsoflo.org.
