"No woman should live with the threat of breast or cervical cancer," American Cancer Society Health Disparities Coordinator Marjorie Johnson said. "Cervical cancer can be prevented by removing precancerous lesions, and most cases of breast cancer can be cured if found early."

To spread this message and provide information on resources that pay for screenings, ACS hosts a Woman's Health Supper on Tuesday at the Peter Rich Community Center.

This free community event begins at 6 p.m. with dinner and a presentation on breast and cervical health.

All women 40 and older are encouraged to attend.

Women will have a chance to learn about the Wisconsin Well Women Program, affordable insurance options available through the Health Access Center, and services to cancer patients and their families through the American Cancer Society.

The American Cancer Society recommends that all women 40 and older have a regular clinical breast exam by their provider and an annual mammogram.

Women with a family history of breast cancer should begin screening earlier.

Women will receive a free T-shirt, and there will be prize drawings.

It is not necessary to register in advance.
