This week, James E. Craigie, MD, of The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction answers your question.
Question: I have no insurance and have no money and looking to get a mammogram I have not had a mammogram in four or five years and I am 64.
Answer: Our office is solely dedicated to the reconstruction process after mastectomy. For a screening mammogram you might contact Komen Lowcountry http://komenlowcountry.org/, and ask them about any community resources or financial aid you can investigate within your county of residence. This list is included on their website and includes information on the Best Chance Network among others. http://komenlowcountry.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/FA-TriCounty-Colleton.pdf. Hope you can find the help you need with this information.
