IT'S OKAY TO TALK ABOUT IT
Early detection is the best protection. Understand that the early stages of breast cancer may not cause any pain or discomfort. Having a regular mammogram and a clinical breast exam by a healthcare professional can help you understand changes in your breasts. Doing your self-exam can help you keep track of regular monthly changes. Early detection gives you the edge when it comes to having breast cancer treated successfully. That is why screening for cancer is an important tool in detecting cancer. Along with educating the community Pink-4-Ever schedules free breast cancer screenings at locations throughout the Indianapolis community to reduce disparities based upon barriers to access.

These workshops can be held at a personal residence, church, or at our office.
