The Fayette County Memorial Hospital (FCMH) Foundation encourages everyone to think pink this October for breast cancer awareness.
Breast Cancer is the second most prevalent type of cancer in Fayette County and the FCMH Foundation has help from several local businesses and organizations to raise funds for its Partners in Pink fund designed to provide diagnostic testing for patients and support services for Fayette County breast cancer patients and survivors.
Partners in Pink provides free mammograms and ultrasounds for patients who qualify. In addition, the program offers support services to breast cancer patients and survivors by providing free wigs, head coverings, medication, yoga, massage and microblading.
Persons interested in finding out how to qualify for free diagnostic mammogram or ultrasound should call FCMH Central Scheduling at 740-333-2743.
Breast cancer patients or survivors who have had a treatment within the last 24 months can contact the FCMH Foundation office at 740-333-5186 for details about how to obtain any of the support services.
