This month is Breast Cancer Awareness month. The Perkins County FFA and Chase County FFA have put in hours of work and dedication to raise money for this cause. We have an annual pink-out game at the Perkins Co. vs. Chase Co. basketball games.
The Perkins Co. FFA has set aside vouchers for women to get mammograms. We intend for these vouchers to go to women who are under-insured or not insured at all. So, if you fall into those two categories, we ask you to use them!
If you have insurance but have a high deductible making the cost prohibitive, we ask you to use these vouchers as well! The best way to prevent this disease is prohibitive measure such as annual screening.
To date, none of these funds have been used.
Please, if you have not had a mammogram lately and want to get one done, contact Jody Snogren at the Perkins County Health Foundation.
