DENISON, TX -- October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the Grayson County Health Department is doing its part to help women maintain their health. All throughout Friday, they gave out free mammograms with help from the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
Health department officials say this is a great opportunity for women to get tested and take preventative steps, especially if they wouldn't be able to afford the screenings otherwise.
"I think it went wonderfully, we had at least 35 participants and they're taking advantage of at least being offered this service, so we like to see great participation, we are excited that everyone took advantage of this great opportunity," Amanda Ortez at the Grayson County Health Department says.
Ortez says they will offer more opportunities for free mammograms later this year as well.

By Olivia Kumwenda-Mtambo JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - A South African sign-language interpreter accused of miming nonsense as world leaders paid tribute to Nelson Mandela defended himself as a "champion" signer on Thursday but said he suffered a schizophrenic episode during the event. The interpreter, 34-year-old Thamsanqa Jantjie, told Johannesburg's Star newspaper he started hearing voices and hallucinating while on stage, resulting in gestures that made no sense to outraged deaf people around the world. The government admitted Jantjie was not a professional interpreter but played down security concerns at his sharing the podium with world leaders including U.S. President Barack Obama at the memorial on Tuesday. We accept all that." After the memorial, South Africa's leading deaf association denounced him as a fake, making up gestures to be put into the mouths of Obama and his South African counterpart Jacob Zuma.
