Free mammograms offered through county’s Giving Circle

October 1, 2013

COLUMBIA CITY — October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The Whitley County Community Foundation’s Giving Circle for Women’s Health is working to generate a greater awareness for women’s health.

The organization recently announced that for the 10th consecutive year, certificates for free mammograms are available to Whitley County women who do not have insurance and would not otherwise be able to afford the vital screenings.

Any Whitley County resident interested in receiving a free mammogram gift certificate should contact Chelsey Barrell, communications coordinator for the community foundation at 244-5224.

Local physicians will also have a limited number of certificates to make available to patients in need.
