?First Saturday in October? offers Bronx women lessons about breast cancer
Free mammograms and screenings were some of the services offered at the ? First Saturday in October? event at the Montefiore Medical Center Saturday.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and event organizers hope the mammograms and screenings will help women pay more attention to their own health. Organizers also say they are doing this for women who could otherwise not afford them.
The American Cancer Society estimates more than 40,000 women will die from breast cancer this year.
