Health department offers breast cancer screenings

Program funded through Susan G. Komen Foundation

Any women in LaSalle or Grundy counties who are in need of breast cancer screening services can contact the LaSalle County Health Department at 815-433-3366.

Despite the Affordable Care Act, many women remain uninsured or underinsured. Funding from the Susan G. Komen Foundation allows the LaSalle County Health Department to provide services for these women.

The health department supports the mission of the Susan G. Komen Foundation to eradicate breast cancer as a life-threatening disease by providing mammography services and education to women in LaSalle and Grundy counties regardless of race, ethnicity, cultural disparities, age, or other potential barriers that may exist, including income.

Early detection is the best protection against breast cancer. Through screening, improved treatment methods and increased access to breast health services, people have a greater survival rate than ever before. To learn more about breast cancer or the Komen Funds program, contact the LaSalle County Health Department or go to lasallecounty.org.
