CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Friday starts Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Rocky Mountain Oncology is working hard to educate residents on the importance of early detection.

Rocky Mountain Oncology is kicking off October with their annual Tata Trot 5K Saturday morning. Following the run, residents can swing by and get a free breast cancer screening. Screening participants do not need to have an appointment. They will be doing them on a walk-in, first come first serve basis.

Staff says early detection is an important part of treating breast cancer. Rocky Mountain Oncology wants to use this month to remind residents that no one fights alone, and resources are available.

“Rocky Mountain Oncology as a whole is here to serve the community of Casper and the surrounding areas. We are open through business even through Covid. Cancer hasn’t taken a break so neither have we so we are in full swing and we’re ready to help people with whatever their concerns may be,” said Amber Mellema, the Wyoming Market Clinical Operations Leader for Rocky Mountain Oncology.

Rocky Mountain Oncology will host another free screening event in Lander mid-October.
