Amy Charles

In observance of breast cancer awareness month coming up in October, Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) and Pikeville Radiology are giving away free mammogram screenings.


To win, fill out an entry form and return it to any on-site collection box or to the Medical Leader Building at 131 Summit Drive in Pikeville.


Online entry is also available at


Entry forms and collection boxes will be available at all PMC information desks, the Diagnostic Center, Leonard Lawson Cancer Center, PMC Clinic Building and Outpatient Clinics located at Walmart, Family Practice, Harold and Shelby Valley.


Entry forms will be accepted until Sept. 26. After that, entry forms will be drawn at random and called to schedule the mammograms.


"Early diagnosis is the best way to beat breast cancer," said Dr. Ruth Lavigne, PMC Radiation Oncologist. "Mammograms can detect cancer at its earliest stages, long before lumps can be found by a self-exam."


For more information about mammograms or to make an appointment at the Leonard Lawson Cancer Center, call 606-218-2212.
