Early detection saves lives. It's a simple, but profound statement. Once again this year, 99.9 KTDY encourages the women of Acadiana to get their annual breast cancer screenings.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This was a month to make everyone aware that one in eight women will have to deal with breast cancer throughout their lifetime.

This month we also took several women for a free mammogram sponsored by the Breast Center of Acadiana. The 16th annual Mammosine rolled out October 27 to the two locations of Breast Center of Acadiana in Lafayette and Youngsville.

When your doctor gives you your prescription for your mammogram, did you know you have a choice of where you want to go? Choose Breast Center of Acadiana. We want to remind you if you read this after October 31 that it doesn't matter what the calendar date shows, just make sure you schedule your mammogram.

At Breast Center of Acadiana, their focus is breast health, 365 days a year. They never take off their pink ribbons or stop talking about early detection.

The Breast Center of Acadiana has created a safe, secure environment that caters to the needs of its patients.
