(WTOL) - October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month -- the perfect time to take advantage of a service being offered by WTOL News 11.
We'll have a phone panel at News 11 offices to take calls Tuesday evening from 5-7 p.m. from people who need or want information about breast cancer prevention, symptoms and/or treatment.
Also, women may call to see if they are eligible for a free mammogram. To be eligible for a free mammogram:
The Breast and Cervical Cancer Project of Fulton County, which received a $100,000 grant from the Komen Foundation, will participate in the phone panel as will some people from the Komen Foundation.
"Last year, we were able to help over 1,300 women get access to free mammogram services and other annual screenings," said Jaime Fogarty, a social worker with the Fulton County Health Department. "This year we would like to strive to get our numbers even higher."
