October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Fort Madison Community Hospital would like to remind all women to take charge of their health and help win the fight against breast cancer.

The greatest weapons in the fight against breast cancer are prevention and early detection, which includes having an annual exam; getting the recommended screenings including a mammogram for women over forty; and adopting healthy habits when it comes to making smart food choices, taking time to exercise, managing stress and getting enough sleep. 

Through the FMCH Foundation, Breast Health Fund, paying for a mammogram or associated tests should not be a barrier from getting this important screening.  If a patient is in need of financial assistance, they can contact Kevin Rink in the Patient Financial Services department at 319-376-2110.

To schedule your mammogram appointment, please contact FMCH Radiology, 319-376-2745.
