Free breast care services provided to local woman at Joanie's Promise Night

Posted: Updated:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - The Mahoning Valley's mortality rate due to breast cancer is significantly above the national average.

Although, staff members at the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center continually work to improve that statistic. 

Wednesday evening they hosted 30 women for Joanie's Promise Night, which offers free health screenings and breast care services to women between the ages of 40 and 64 who are uninsured or underinsured and meet certain financial criteria.

"We know that the screening itself helps with the early detection and early detection brings about optimal results.  So, if we can get them in here and get them screened, if there is an issue or a problem we can address it earlier and then we can have better results," said Ann McKee, community liaison with Joanie's Promise.

Services provided under Joanie's Promise are provided Monday through Friday at the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center.  To learn more, contact Ann McKee at 330-480-2763.
