Niagara County Legislature Chairwoman Becky Wydysh and Legislator Irene Myers announced the Windsong mobile mammography screening van will be at the Ransomville Fire Co. on Saturday, Oct. 31 to conduct breast cancer screening. Appointments must be scheduled with Windsong prior to the event.
“October is breast cancer awareness month so there is no better time for Niagara County to partner with Windsong to bring the mobile mammography screening van to our community,” Wydysh said. “We are trying to make it as easy as possible for women to get this test done, especially for those who may have been putting it off.”
The event will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the fire company, 2521 Youngstown-Lockport Road. To schedule an appointment, call Windsong at 716-929-9494 or visit www.windsongwny.com/radiology. Windsong’s mobile mammography unit accepts all major insurances. However, if one does not have health insurance, they may be eligible for a mammogram at no cost. Call Windsong for further information.
“This is very personal to me, as I am a breast cancer survivor who just had a mastectomy earlier this year,” Myers said. “I know that early detection is the key to battling breast cancer, so please do not put off getting your mammogram. Breast cancer not only affects you, it affects your entire family, so make your health a priority for you and your family.”
