It’s Breast Cancer Awareness month – and Hutt Valley DHB wants your help to save lives.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer affecting New Zealand women. Regular mammograms can find breast cancer early, leading to effective treatment before it spreads. Yet many women put breast screening off.
By encouraging someone you love to make a breast screening appointment, you can play your part. We’re fortunate to have a clinic right next to Hutt Hospital, offering free mammograms every two years to women aged 45-69.
Phone BreastScreen Aotearoa on 0800 270 200 or visit www.timetoscreen.nz for more information about breast screening.
