Shining a (Pink) Spotlight on Breast Cancer (PHOTOS)
OSF HealthCare has lit up its hospitals and medical facilities with pink spotlights to shine a light on the community’s commitment to fighting breast cancer.
Early detection is the most effective weapon in the fight against breast cancer. Bathing our buildings in pink is our way of reminding every woman 40 and older or who is at high-risk for breast cancer they need to get a regular screening mammogram and to begin self-breast exams in their early 20s so they can recognize changes in their breast tissue.
OSF patients have convenient options lsuch as walk-ins and weekend appointments and now they can self-schedule their mammogram online.
