  4:00PM 7:00PM Mammogram Mondays   Mammogram Mondays are back — starting October 7 – at two locations. The Regional Cancer Partnership of Illinois (RCPIL) will provide free mammograms for uninsured women age 40 and older on Mondays in October at two Springfield locations. The free service is made possible through a $23,460 grant from the Memorial Affiliate of Susan G. Komen. Approximately 70 women were screened when the program was initiated in 2012 by Simmons Cancer Institute in coordination with Memorial Medical Center. “Last year’s program was a great success, and this year’s participation will be as good, because mammograms can really save lives,” said Dr. Robert Mocharnuk, director of the Breast Center at SIU located in Simmons Cancer Institute. Appointments for the free mammograms are available at Simmons Cancer Institute (SCI) at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, 315 W. Carpenter St. and at Priority Care, 1100 Lincolnshire Blvd., (east off S. Sixth Street and north of Aldi’s). St. John’s Hospital will take appointment requests at Priority Care from 1-4 p.m. on Mondays in October or by calling toll free 1-855-253-6145. Memorial Medical Center, which provides mammography services at Simmons Cancer Institute, will take calls for appointments at SCI from 4-7 p.m. on Mondays in October by calling 217-788-4042. Walk-ins will not be accepted at either location. Educational materials, information on general breast health and how to perform breast self-exams will be available. Memorial Medical Center, St. John’s Hospital and SCI partnered through the Regional Cancer Partnership’s Komen Memorial Affiliate grant to provide services at the two locations. “Long-term survival increases dramatically when there is an early diagnosis. That is why mammograms are so important,” said Celeste Wiley, RCPIL chair. “Women who educate themselves about their risk and get mammograms can aid in the early detection of breast cancer.” The National Cancer Institute recommends that women age 40 or older have screening mammograms every one to two years. Screening mammograms are for patients who do not have symptoms or who have not detected any abnormalities. The mission of Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU is to serve the people of central and southern Illinois by addressing their present and future cancer needs through education, research, patient care and community service.
