Spread the word and take advantage of a free breast cancer screening event in Glen Oaks tomorrow.

The Glen Oaks Volunteer Ambulance Corps will host a free mammography event on Friday, Nov. 18, from 2 p.m. until 4:30 p.m.

Procedures will be performed by the American Italian Cancer Foundation (AICF) Mobile Care Clinic. To be eligible for a free screening, the participant must be a woman 40 or older with health insurance or 50 or older without health insurance. Participants must also be a New York City resident and not have received a mammogram in the past 12 months.

No co-pays are required and deductibles are waived.

The screenings will be held at the Glen Oaks Volunteer Ambulance Corps located at 257-02 Union Tpke. To make an appointment, call 877-628-9090.

“Around the country we celebrate October as breast cancer awareness month,” said state Senator Tony Avella, who is also sponsoring the event. “However, breast cancer is an issue that affects the women in our community all year round. I’m proud to partner with the Glen Oaks Volunteer Ambulance Corps and the AICF to ensure that the mothers, sisters, and daughters of New York City have access to preventative procedures that can save their lives.”
