Brake for Breakfast event raises breast cancer awareness

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Breast Cancer Awareness Month was marked by The Jewish Hospital- Mercy Health by educating the public and encouraging women to get mammograms. The Brake for Breakfast event took place from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. and allowed woman to drive up, get free breakfast and make their annual mammogram appointment.

"Woman are powerful and on-the-go but we must remember to take a break for ourselves," said Dr. Elizabeth Weaver, Medical Director of The Jewish Hospital Breast Center.

Organizers say any woman who receives a mammogram between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31 at any Mercy Health location is eligible to win one of three Mercy Heath- HealthPlex spa packages valued at $200. Mercy Health will draw a winner at the end of each month.
