Sorority offering mammograms at 1st Calvary Baptist

The Delta Xi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority is joining with Novant Health Breast Center and First Calvary Baptist Church to take action against breast cancer.

Oct. 19 was National Mammography Awareness Day, a reminder to all women that the best defense against breast cancer is early detection. A mammogram can often detect a problem before there is any physical sign.

On Nov. 10, mammograms will be given from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the parking lot of First Calvary Baptist Church. Women over 40 are encouraged to have an annual mammogram.

Pre-registration is required. Appointments can be made by contacting Marva McCain at 704-640-0087 or Earnestine Krider at 704-637-7183 and completing an application.

There are a limited number of appointments available. They are first come, first served. Applications must be turned in by Oct. 30.

A limited number of free mammograms will be available for women without insurance who submit an application. Insurance paperwork will be filed.

Women must be at least 35 to participate.

First Calvary Baptist Church’s Missionary Unit 6 will also offer free blood pressure checks, workshops, health and exercise activities, and information in the church annex.
