Lakewood Health System in Staples is offering women a unique way to make annual mammography screening less of a chore and more, well, like a party.

Kris Posner, Lakewood Health System Breast Health Navigator, said the importance of early detection in breast cancer can’t be overestimated.

“We know that mammography helps catch breast cancer early, when treatment is most likely to be successful,” said Posner. “Treating women to some pampering as a reward for getting screened is a small thing to do for possibly saving a life.”

The Mammo Party will be held at Lakewood’s Main Campus east of Staples on Thursday, Jan. 23, from 12:30-5:30 p.m. The party will include paraffin wax hand dips, massages, treats and prizes.

Women who want to schedule a mammogram during the Mammo Party time should call 218-898-PINK (7465).
