DALTON, Ga. (June 1, 2015) – Hamilton Diagnostics Center (HDC) recently held a Mammos for Mommas event, designed for women who are uninsured and in need of a mammogram.

The event was made possible through a grant from the Northwest Georgia Regional Cancer Coalition. HDC provided goodie bags, T-shirts and snacks for the women in attendance.

“Mommas are important people,” said Annette Daniel, event coordinator. “It’s very important that women age 40 and up get their mammograms on a yearly basis. Early detection is still the best protection, and it’s our goal to save lives. We can do that by getting the earliest possible diagnosis when cancer is present.”

Hamilton Diagnostics Center occasionally receives grants from various sources to provide uninsured patients with mammogram services.
