FOX CREEK – Women ages 50-74: the group most at risk of developing breast cancer, they will have local access to mammography services when the Alberta Health Services Screen Test program arrives in the community next month.

A mobile mammography trailer will be stationed at the Fox Creek Health Care Centre on July 22 and 23. Residents can book an appointment or learn more about the program by calling 1-800-667-0604.

Screen Test is improving access to cancer screening for hundreds of women in northern Alberta communities where mammography is not readily available.

A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast and has proven to be the most effective way to detect breast cancer. Early detection allows for a greater number of options for treatment and a better chance of survival.
