Weather delays breast cancer awareness event

Staff Report

LUMBERTON — A breast cancer awareness fair scheduled for Friday at Biggs Park Mall has been postponed because of the threat of inclement weather from Hurricane Matthew.

Southeastern Health’s Hope, Faith, Courage event will be held on Oct. 21 instead.

The event will feature breast cancer awareness booths, entertainment and refreshments. It will also offer free breast exams on the Wellness on Wheels mobile unit, which will be parked at the front of the mall. If the breast exam indicates that a mammogram is needed, immediate referrals will be made to Southeastern Radiology Associates.

Navigators will be on hand to file insurance or to determine alternate methods of payment. Pre-registration for the free exam is requested by calling 910-671-5762.
