Lourdes Health Network Offering Free Mammograms

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - The Lourdes Health Network is offering help to women in need.

On Tuesday the 14th Lourdes is offering a free mammogram day, specifically for women between the ages of 40 to 60 who don't have health insurance.

The foundation had help from sponsors like the Susan G. Komen Foundation, In Step With Hope, and The Benton Franklin Fair and Rodeo to fund the free appointments.

The people from Lourdes hope that women who usually ca not afford screenings will get their chance at a health check-up.

"We know that early prevention can make a difference in the outcomes. Most of these women that receive the free mammograms probably wouldn't have that service done, because they don't have the funds," said the Chief Development Officer at Lourdes, Connie Gillispie.

The mammograms are by appointment only. To make an appointment, call 509-543-7583. The testing is at Lordes West Pasco's Diagnostic Imaging Center at 7425 Wrigley Drive, Suite 101 in Pasco.
