October is a special month for cancer awareness for liver and for breast cancer, both. As a way to honor National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Southcoast Radiology and Imaging Services, a part of Southcoast Health, is offering free mammograms for uninsured individuals.

Screenings, that require an appointment, are offered at all 10 Southcoast Breast Imaging Centers across the region.

To schedule an appointment for a free mammogram, call 1-800-276-0103. Massachusetts residents will also have the opportunity to speak with someone in Patient Financial Services for guidance on how to apply for health insurance.
