October 16, 2018
Watertown Regional Medical Center is now a local provider in providing breast screening and breast cancer financial assistance through the Susan G. Komen Fund. Susan G. Komen of Wisconsin provides financial assistance for breast health services including breast exam, mammogram, ultrasound and other tests as recommended.
Susan G. Komen funding is available to women in 22 counties in Wisconsin including Dodge and Jefferson. Individuals who meet the income guidelines of up to 400% of the Federal Poverty level, are uninsured, underinsured may be eligible.
Early detection is key to fighting breast cancer, and can lead to an easier treatment plan. A mammogram is a simple, routine screening that helps detect breast cancer earlier than waiting for symptoms to appear. Regular mammograms can begin as early as 40 years of age. It’s a good idea to talk with your doctor about your risks and the most appropriate time for you to get started with mammograms.
