Date:5/7/2008

Hunter College offers women the gift of health this Mother's Day

STAMFORD, Conn., May 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Every two minutes a woman in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer(1). In New York City alone, more than 5,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer annually and nearly 1,200 die from the disease(2). While annual mammograms are recommended for woman over the age of 40, more than half of U.S. women of screening age do not recognize how critical breast cancer screening is or do not have the means to get a mammogram regularly.

This Mother's Day, Fujifilm is encouraging all women over 40 to give themselves the gift of health, and is promoting free mammograms for women in New York City as part of its national public education campaign called Images of Health: Mammograms for a Million Moms.

On Thursday, May 8 from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., women of screening age are invited to receive a FREE mammogram at Hunter College on the corner of 68th Street and Lexington Avenue in New York City. In addition to a free mammogram, a health educator will be onsite to answer questions and provide educational materials to help encourage better breast health year round. The free mammograms are being provided by Fujifilm and the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF), and carried out by the American-Italian Cancer Foundation (AICF) and Hunter College. Appointments are required and can be made by calling 1-800-564-6868.

"It's rewarding to be involved in breast cancer awareness by promoting the importance of early detection and providing access to lifesaving mammograms," said Kristina Testa-Buzzee, Director of Wellness Education at Hunter College. "This is a tremendous opportunity for the mothers and grandmothers of our students -- as well as the Hunter faculty and local community members -- and we're grateful to Fujifilm for bringing such a worthwhile cause to our campus."

The free mammograms are part of Fujifilm's Images of Health:
