Mammograms are the most effective screening tools for early detection of breast cancer. They can detect it at an early stage, often years before a tumor is felt by someone or a doctor.

Muscatine Resident Rhonda Larson is an advocate for breast cancer awareness and encourages women ages forty to forty-five or older who are at average risk for breast cancer to get their annual mammogram.

Larson and her team have been working hard to make over fifty bracelets to promote breast cancer awareness. She shared she enjoys making the bracelets because they offer a way to honor members of her family who suffered from cancer. “I feel good about it – my father and grandma died of cancer, so that’s why raising awareness holds a special place in my heart.”

For the month of October, Muscatine Radiology will have these bracelets available for anyone who has a mammogram.
