Can you believe that it's almost already October? As we turn another page of the calendar next week, one Maine hospital is recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month in a big way.

According to the Portland Press Herald, Maine Medical Center will be offering free mammograms in the month of October. You can register for an appointment anytime between October 1st and November 1st, by calling 207-396-8443.

The free mammograms are available to any woman age 40 and over with no active breast problems.

With breast cancer, early detection is key. Kudos to Maine Medical Center for recognizing Breast Cancer Awareness Month, with a great promotion to help get the word out!

You can help spread the word as well. Be sure to share this with any woman you know age 40 and over.

The more women we can get to Maine Medical Center for a free mammogram, the closer we are to putting an end to breast cancer once and for all.
