The Doris Shaheen Breast Health Center at Piedmont Hospital, 97.1 FM The River and Best Self Atlanta magazine have come together to help increase awareness for breast cancer prevention. The BreasText program sends a free text message to your cell phone each month reminding you when it’s time for a breast self-exam. Just text the word Breast to 72239, and you’ll receive a message welcoming you to Better Health with the Piedmont Hospital monthly breast self-exam reminders. Simply reply to the message with a.m. or p.m. for your desired texting time, and each month you will receive a reminder tailored to your request. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so we’re kicking our program off a little early. Each year, more than 100,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Early detection is the best way to treat this disease, and a monthly self-exam will help keep you aware of any potential problems.
