Ladies: Take charge of your health in October

We’re taking charge: Help defeat breast cancer by getting a mammogram!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but this time of year is about more than pink ribbons. It’s about taking action to protect yourself, to take charge of your life. All of that can begin by getting a mammogram – which is free for CoxHealth employees 40 and over with CoxHealth insurance!

Besides getting a mammogram, be sure to visit CoxHealth’s Facebook page throughout the month. There you’ll find stories from our colleagues and friends, who will talk about why this test is so important. These stories are as unique as the people telling them: There’s the employee who convinced her friend to get a mammogram by going with her – and finding out she had breast cancer herself. And there are others whose mammograms provided nothing more than piece of mind. While their stories are different, there’s a common factor: Each of their lives was affected by getting that mammogram. By getting one, they took control of their health, and you can too.

Follow our stories, but make one of your own: Sign up for your mammogram by calling 417-269-LADY (Springfield), 417-348-8314 (Branson) or 417-354-1137 (Monett)!
