LOUISVILLE, Ky. (April 17, 2014) — Today from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Thorntons on 4500 S. Third St. in Louisville will provide low-cost/no-cost mammogram screenings as part of its ongoing “Thorntons Challenge” philanthropic commitment toward breast cancer awareness. Thorntons Inc. is continuing its partnership with Norton Healthcare Prevention and Wellness to provide mobile unit mammogram screenings for women throughout the Louisville metropolitan.
To make an appointment for Friday, call: 502-899-6842, however appointments are not necessary during this screening. Mammogram screenings are available for women between the ages of 40-75 who have not been screened in the past year for little to no cost.
This important – and often life-saving – initiative is made possible by an annual $100,000 grant Thorntons has donated to the Norton Cancer Institute, an initiative that will continue throughout 2015 and beyond. Women who are medically insured, their insurance companies will be billed and co-pay may apply for the low-cost screening, however, will not be collected at the time of the exam. For the uninsured, funding will be provided for no-cost screenings
