Cancer Center offers free mammograms Mondays in October

October 12, 2022 

HSHS St. John’s Hospital is helping to ensure uninsured and underinsured women receive their annual mammogram by offering free Mammogram Mondays in October. 

“Mammography screening is the best test we have to find breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat,” said Jennifer Danes, BSN, RN, oncology nurse navigator. “All women 40 years of age or older should be screened for breast cancer once a year. Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women, and a mammogram can help detect the early signs of breast cancer before it can be felt.”

The remaining free mammography screening dates are Oct. 17, 24 and 31, 2022, but free screenings can also be scheduled beyond the month of October. To schedule call 217-993-0480. 

Mammogram Mondays are funded by HSHS St. John’s Foundation.
