BreastScreen Victoria statistics show that 71 women in the City of Casey might have breast cancer—but don’t know it because they haven’t had a breast screen.
To help find these women, the BreastScreen van arrived outside Cranbourne Library today to give free breast screens until 18 April.
A breast screen every two years is an essential part of a woman’s wellbeing over the age of 50.
BreastScreen Victoria CEO Vicki Pridmore is encouraging women in Casey to have a free breast screen—and in particular take advantage of the van visit to Cranbourne Library.
“You can support someone you know to have a breast screen. You can even go with them to their appointment—a breast screen takes just 10 minutes, is with a woman and it’s free,” said Ms Pridmore.
The van is outside Cranbourne Library, 65 Berwick-Cranbourne Rd, Cranbourne East from 12 March to 18 April.
Appointments for the Cranbourne van can be made online or by calling 13 20 50
