620 WTMJ is teaming up with Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Cancer Network to provide cancer awareness and resources.
Through this project, spearheaded by Jeff Wagner, we are encouraging people to talk with their doctors about cancer screenings that are right for them.
When it comes to breast cancer, early detection is the best defense.
A mammogram and monthly breast self-exam can find cancer early, which can then mean more treatment options and improves survival.
Froedtert is offering breast cancer screenings on Tuesday, August 16 from 3-6 p.m. and Wednesday, August 17 from 1-4:30 p.m. If you can't make either of the dates, appointments are still available at many locations.
Registration is required and is limited, so call early. These screenings are by appointment only. Each screening takes about 30 minutes.
Please be aware that usual charges for mammograms apply, but are billable to insurance.
To make an appointment for a cancer screening or assessment during the WTMJ Cares “Week of Hope,” call 414-805-3666 and select option 2. Be sure to mention WTMJ and the Jeff Wagner show.
