Free breast cancer screening for women over 50 at expo

Posted: Updated:

About 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, but for women under 50, death rates have decreased because of screening advancements.

Breast cancer screenings can be pretty costly but a valley organization is giving some women screenings for free.

Women 40 or older who are uninsured or unable to pay high medical prices could get a free breast cancer screening at the Phoenix Urban Expo on Saturday.

To be eligible, women must not have had a mammogram within this year and cannot be breastfeeding, pregnant or eligible for AHCCHS.
