MARTINSBURG, W.Va. – The WVU Cancer Institute Regional Cancer Center will offer discount mammogram clinics each Saturday in October at both Berkeley Medical Center and Jefferson Medical Center in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

One in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, making it the leading cause of cancer death among women. Studies have shown that early detection through clinical breast exams, self-exams, and mammograms greatly improve breast cancer survival rates.

The clinics will be held at the Berkeley Medical Center Women’s Imaging Center and Jefferson Medical Center Women’s Imaging Center. The screenings will be offered at a discount rate of $60, which includes the mammogram and interpretation of the results by a radiologist.

The program is open to anyone age 35 and older and a physician’s order is not required to participate. All patients in advance by calling the Women’s Imaging Center at Berkeley Medical Center or Jefferson Medical Center, phone 844-802-2734, option 2.

Limited financial assistance is available through the WVU Medicine University Healthcare Foundation Cancer Comfort Fund. For more information, call the Foundation office at 304-264-1223.
