Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, but only 61% of eligible women in Ontario are being screened for breast cancer. According to Cancer Care Ontario, this disease affects one in nine women, most of whom do not have a family history of breast cancer.

The OBSP provides high-quality breast screening free of charge for Ontario women. If you know a woman who would benefit from regular breast screening tell her to visit www.mammothon.ca.
