It seems like every month these days is trying to remind you of something, so I wasn’t surprised to learn that October is the dedicated month of a few things, most notably National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Since I love you all I was excited to find in my mailbox information on free mammograms, directed to women over 40 who do not have health insurance. The Matthew Walker Comprehensive Health Center is the main place for the free mammograms. You can schedule an appointment by calling Matthew Walker at615-340-1280 or 615-327-9400 ext. 341.
There’s also another option for you music business professionals. According to a press release I received women over 40 who are in the industry can get free mammograms on any of the following days by calling MusiCares at 615-327-0050 or emailing Danielle.Bowker@grammy.com or Cortney.Bailey@grammy.com:
- Monday, October 11, 2010
- Monday, October 18, 2010
- Wednesday, November 24, 2010
- Monday, November 29, 2010
- Wednesday, December 1, 2010
- Friday, December 17, 2010
Keep yourselves up to date on these things. They say early detection is key, so don’t put this off.
