As part of its ongoing “Thorntons Challenge” philanthropic commitment toward breast cancer awareness, Thorntons Inc. is continuing its partnership with Norton Cancer Institute to provide mobile unit mammogram screenings for women throughout the Louisville metropolitan. This important—and often life-saving—initiative is made possible by an annual $100,000 grant Thorntons has donated to the Norton Cancer Institute, an initiative that will continue throughout 2015 and beyond.
Beginning this week, mammogram screenings are available for women between the ages of 40-75 who have not been screened in the past year. For women who are medically insured, their insurance companies will be billed and a co-pay may apply for the low-cost screening. However, it will not be collected at the time of the exam. For the uninsured, funding will be provided for no-cost screenings.
The 2015 screenings will be conducted aboard the Norton Cancer Institute Mobile Prevention Center through the Norton Healthcare Foundation from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the dates listed below at the following Louisville Thorntons locations:
- Friday, April 17 – 4500 S. 3rd Street Louisville, KY 40214
- Wednesday, July 15 – 4136 Cane Run Rd Louisville, KY 40216
- Breast Cancer Prevention Blitz Week: Monday-Friday, Oct. 19-23 for weeklong screenings, Locations TBA.
