LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Thorntons is teaming up with Norton Cancer Institute to provide low cost and even no cost mammogram screenings.

The mobile unit will be parked at various Thorntons throughout Kentuckiana the week of September 24.

For women without insurance this is a great opportunity to take advantage of this life saving exam.

"We get those patients and we navigate them, we just don't leave you" said Janel Willingham with Norton Healthcare. "If you don't have insurance we make sure you get with people we navigate you financially how to get through that. We have opportunities with sponsors like Thorntons to help those women get through such a horrible process in their life at the moment."
