GLENDALE, CA – October 19, 2010 – In celebration of the success of the Army of Pink program, the debut of new digital mammography technology at Glendale Adventist Medical Center and in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month, the hospital will offer a limited number of $50 DIGITAL MAMMOGRAMS for women in need. Interested people must call (818) 409-8100 to reserve their spot today.

The screenings will be given between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. on Nov. 15 and 16 only and will be done at Glendale Adventist Medical Center using the hospital’s new Digital Mammography technology. The cost is $50 (includes the hospital and physician component).

The Army of Pink program officially started October 1 and ended October 26. It centered on a pink online election featuring seven well-known community men who have agreed to wear pink, campaign and increase awareness on early breast cancer prevention and detection. More than 109,000 votes were cast for the seven candidates through the Army of Pink program! Campaign candidates asked community members during the month of October to vote online at www.GlendaleAdventist.com/ArmyofPink for the candidate that they think is best spreading the word about disease awareness and education.

According to the American Cancer Society, one in 68 women in their forties is at risk of developing breast cancer. The risk increases to one in 37 for women in their fifties. Breast cancer is one of the top three cancers in women and a mammogram is the gold standard when screening for the disease. Call (818) 409-8100 to reserve your digital mammogram.
