Saskatchewan’s Screening Program for Breast Cancer mobile bus will be in Creighton August 19th to 27th at the Sportex. Early Detection Coordinator Laurie Pearce says this program is important to women. She explains it’s a test that is provided to women who have health card coverage and certainly Flin Flon women are also welcome to come to the mobile bus when it’s in Creighton and it’s important because the earlier cancer is detected usually the more treatable it is and low stage it is and that goes with all types of screening programs including the screening program for colorectal cancer and also the pap test for cervical cancer so early detection really does save lives.
Screenings will take place from 8 am to 8 pm weekdays and they still have appointments open so you can call 1-855-584-8228 to book one. Following Creighton they will move on to Pelican Narrows from August 28th to September 4th at the Angelique Canada Health Centre.
