Hopkins County Health Care Foundation’s Free Mammography Clinic

Hopkins County Health Care Foundation’s Free Mammography Clinic
  • PublishedOctober 6, 2023


 

Sulphur Springs, TX –

The available appointments for the Hopkins County Health Care Foundation’s Free Mammography Clinic are filling up. Only a few openings are still available. If you are an uninsured woman over 40 years of age that lives in Hopkins County you are eligible for a free mammogram through this program.

The staff of the Ruth & Jack Gillis Women’s Center, a part of CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital – Sulphur Springs, will be welcoming women to the clinic on three Saturdays in October: 14, 21, and 28.

If you miss out on the free clinic this year, it should be back again next year in October.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is a good time to schedule an annual mammogram. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in her life. The risk of breast cancer increases with age, so mammograms continue to be important, as is early detection.

If you are eligible for a free mammogram, call 903-438-4325 to schedule an appointment. Don’t delay.
