October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
This October, The Good Samaritan Clinic is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the most common kind of cancer in women after skin cancer. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.
The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.
- If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them.
- If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often.
Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms.
We believe that healthy people make our families and communities grow ever stronger. Our free services help the underinsured, and uninsured, stay healthy and working.
We provide both medical and spiritual support. The Good Samaritan Clinics are a safe place to receive free general medical care, health education, prevention advice, and spiritual guidance.
Volunteers and donors are the heart and soul of our clinics. Through their generosity, we are able to provide medical and dental services in our community free of charge.
We help because, without it, many in our community would be left to suffer and risk their lives out of fear. That’s why, in the spirit of the Good Samaritan, our Clinics provide free medical care to those in need.
