City Examining Breasts at Safeway
posted by July 11 at 12:52 PMon
Yesterday I Slogged about the woman in a bikini I saw shopping at the Safeway at Madison and 23rd.
Today my inbox was brightened by a press release about “Safeway’s new, state-of-the-art digital mammography van”:
Safeway has partnered with the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) to bring modern digital mammography to women in convenient locations. Places like Safeway grocery stores and office locations across Western Washington. They are accomplishing this through the creation of a mobile mammography van that will drive from location to location. In other words, if women won’t come to mammography, mammography will come to them. The mobile mammography unit will be loaded with next generation diagnostic equipment created by GE. This equipment moves mammography from an archaic past to streamlined and efficient future. Less invasive, faster, better diagnostic images and more comfortable than old mammography technology, the mobile mammography unit will be able to screen as many as 30 women a day.
Please join us for this special occasion.

According to the press release, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, so ladies, get them breasts checked. (And if you want to do some shopping in a bikini while you’re at it, go nuts.)
