(Ventura and Ojai, California) Community Memorial Health System is dedicated to providing the best screening and imaging technologies to all women in the community. Early detection of breast cancer saves lives. Call now to schedule your mammogram!

In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, CMHS is offering low-cost breast imaging to all women who schedule a screening during October at the Breast Center at Community Memorial Hospital in Ventura or at Ojai Valley Community Hospital.

During October at the Breast Center in Ventura, Automated Breast Ultrasound (ABUS) is available for patients with dense breasts for $150. Automatic Whole Breast Ultrasound (ABUS) is FDA-approved and used in combination with mammography for those who have dense breast tissue. Also at the Breast Center in October, 3D Breast Tomosynthesis is available for $90. Digital tomosynthesis creates a 3-dimensional picture of the breast using X-rays and is the latest breast imaging technology approved by the FDA. At Ojai Valley Community Hospital during October, traditional 2D mammography is available for $65. (These discounted rates are the cash price paid at the time of service and cannot be applied toward the patient’s deductible.)

You do know that it is fact that mammograms can cause cancer? How can anyone get their breast squeezed like pancakes and think that is a normal test? Wake up and don’t buy into their fear mongering tests, poisons, surgeries and radiation. Work with your body to heal it. I know a 30+ year old that recently had her breast removed because of these shysters. If she is not careful, they’ll take the other with their fear tactics.
I have watched numerous people (family, friends) take their “traditional treatments” and live in misery until they die. I have seen people who have worked with their bodies, giving them the nutrition, sunlight, rest and exercise needed and they are healed.
