Niagara County Legislature Chairman Becky Wydysh and Legislator Irene Myers today announced that the Windsong Mobile Mammography Screening Van will be at the Ransomville Fire Company on Saturday, October 31 to conduct breast cancer screening. Appointments must be scheduled with Windsong prior to the event.
“October is breast cancer awareness month so there is no better time for Niagara County to partner with Windsong to bring the mobile mammography screening van to our community,” said Wydysh. “We are trying to make it as easy as possible for women to get this test done, especially for those who may have been putting it off.”
The event will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Ransomville Fire Company, 2521 Youngstown-Lockport Road in Ransomville. To schedule an appointment, call Windsong at (716) 929-9494 or go to their website at www.windsongwny.com/radiology. Windsong’s Mobile Mammography Unit accepts all major insurances. However, if you do not have health insurance, you may be eligible for a mammogram at no cost to you. Call Windsong for further information.
“This is very personal to me, as I am a breast cancer survivor who just had a mastectomy earlier this year,” said Myers. “I know that early detection is the key to battling breast cancer, so please do not put off getting your mammogram. Breast cancer not only affects you, it affects your entire family, so make your health a priority for you and your family.”
