No Excuses Program Offers Free Breast Cancer Screenings
01/02/2014
The No Excuses Breast Cancer Outreach Program, a service of Washington Regional Cancer Support Home, will offer free clinical breast exams Friday, Jan. 17, from 3 – 6 p.m. at the Northwest Arkansas Free Health Center located at 1100 North Woolsey Ave. in Fayetteville.

The examinations are offered at no cost to the public and are performed by physicians and registered nurse practitioners. Appointments are required. To schedule an appointment, please call 479-521-8024.

The American Cancer Society recommends clinical breast exams at least every three years for women ages 20-39 and every year for women ages 40 and over. The clinical breast exam is a manual exam and does NOT include a mammogram. However, follow-up mammography and imaging services for women without insurance coverage for mammography are also available through No Excuses or other assistance programs. Interpretation services are provided on the day of the clinic for Spanish-speaking women.

For more than 15 years, the No Excuses Breast Cancer Outreach Program has been a champion for early detection of breast cancer by helping thousands of women and men overcome the excuses often given for neglecting breast health. Specifically, the program addresses financial, language and cultural barriers by providing free breast cancer screenings, financial assistance with diagnostic procedures and strategic breast health education.

No Excuses is made available by Washington Regional Cancer Support Home through a grant received from the Ozark Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
