Jiffy Steamer and Thunderbolt Broadcasting has teamed up to support the Breast Cancer Awareness Month of October. There are registration locations around the Ken-Tenn area where local customers may drop their names in for a end of the month drawing to receive an pink Esteam or a J-2000. The American Cancer Society suggests every woman over the age of 40 should receive an annual mammogram as a first line of defense against breast cancer.
Local gynecologist Dr. Robert Cameron of the Woman's Clinic in Union City adds a caveat: If a woman's mother had breast cancer at a young age, that woman will be at an increased risk. If the mother was diagnosed at age 40, then her daughter should consider beginning her own mammograms at age 30 - just back it up 10 years from the time of the mother's diagnosis, Cameron says of that important first line of defense. Jiffy Steamer is committed to providing funds to fight for a cure for breast cancer as well as to provide early detection of cancer for those that could otherwise not afford it utilizing mammograms, ultrasounds, and stereotactic biopsies. By donating 10% of all retail sales of the Awareness Pink Line of Jiffy® Steamer products, our hope is that we will make an impact in this fight against breast cancer.
