Remind a friend

Once your mammogram is scheduled, remind other women you care about to do the same. A simple text or a quick call will let them know you care and be the gentle push they need to schedule. Early detection is a key part in fighting breast cancer, and your reminder could save their life. Share on social media or copy this link to share.

Great news: Annual mammogram screenings are covered by most health plans. However, it must be 12 months since your previous mammogram before you can schedule again. Contact your insurance provider for details.
