On weekdays through May 2014, Mountain Vista Medical Center will offer a $75 breast cancer screening.

Mammograms can help detect tumors and increase the chances of a successful fight against breast cancer.

According to the American Cancer Society, nearly one in eight women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime, and roughly 40,000 will die each year from the disease. While the American Cancer Society recommends an annual mammogram for women 40 and older, it is estimated 29 percent of insured women and 68 percent of uninsured women are not receiving an annual mammogram.

Mountain Vista Medical Center is located at 1301 S. Crismon Road in Mesa. Call 1-877-924-9355 for more information or to make an appointment for a digital mammogram and mention “Mother’s Day mammo special” when you call. A physician’s order is required. Insurance will not be billed and the screening is not valid for patients with breast implants or pre-existing breast conditions.
