A hospital in Mount Clemens, east of Detroit, is offering free mammograms to uninsured women who are Macomb County residents. It’s part of their “BRAvo for women” program.
Pat Keigher directs McLaren Macomb’s Breast Center. She says breast cancer causes nearly 40-thousand deaths each year. But when it’s detected early, she says five year survival rate is 98 percent so women do not need to die from this disease.
