Spectrum Health mobile mammogram coming to Hesperia on Sept. 6
FREMONT – Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial will bring a mobile mammogram unit to Hesperia on Friday, Sept. 6, to encourage women to get screened for breast cancer.
A service of Spectrum Health Betty Ford Breast Care Services, the mobile unit will be parked at Family Dollar, 9585 E Sunset Blvd, Hesperia, MI 49421.
Because the mobile unit can take a limited number of patients, women are asked to make an appointment to reserve a spot. Appointments are available from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Breast cancer will affect one in eight women during her lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society. When detected early, breast cancer can be treated and cured. The American Cancer Society recommends women 40 years and older have a mammogram once a year.
