||To give women an opportunity to receive a potentially life-saving mammogram at a time that’s convenient for them, Ellis Fischel Cancer Center is hosting a “mammothon” breast cancer screening event. In addition to breast screenings, specialized cancer screening nurses will provide breast exams and breast cancer education, as well as refreshments. Women must be age 40 or older to receive a screening mammogram. The after-hours event will take place from 5 to 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 13, and from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 14. The mammothon will take place at Ellis Fischel Cancer Center, One Hospital Drive in Columbia. Appointments can be made by calling (573) 884-4082. Walk-in screenings will be available.
