The Annual Brake for Breakfast sponsored by The Power County Hospital District and the Hospital Cooperative is set for Wednesday, October 3rd in several regional communities. Over fourteen hospitals in the area have joined forces to raise breast cancer awareness again this year. Locally in our area, the event will be held at the American Falls City Park, Rockland City Offices, and Aberdeen Health West on October 3rd from 7:00-9:00am or while supplies last! Limit of 4 per car please.This will be the 15th year that the Power County Hospital District has participated in the event.
Brake for Breakfast is a “drive-through” event scheduled in the morning to catch women on their way to work or dropping kids off at school to participate easily. Each woman or man will receive a free breakfast, important breast cancer awareness information, and pink gift item! Organizer Jacklyn Taylor says, “The ultimate goal is to remind women to do monthly self-breast exams and to get a mammogram yearly after age 40. While there is no cure for breast cancer, survival rates are very high when diagnosed early.”
In the United States, breast cancer is the most common non-skin cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related death in women. Idaho continues to have one of the lowest mammogram usage rates in the United States, which makes events like this even more important for encouraging local women to schedule annual screenings as soon as possible. For more information on Brake for Breakfast please call Jacklyn at 226-3200.
