Free Breast Cancer Screening at Locations in WY

Right now we’re in the middle of breast cancer awareness month and experts will tell you getting screened is one of the best ways to catch cancer early. Our William Langston spoke with a survivor of breast cancer about what she’s learned on her journey. 

Vicky Fry lives in Cheyenne and is a director at the Cheyenne Regional Foundation. She took some time out of her day to speak with Your Wyoming Link about her battle with cancer and why spreading awareness is so important.

“I was diagnosed with breast cancer on November 5th, 2018. I had my mesectomy on November 9th, 2018, and I started chemo in December. I did chemo all the way up until February of 2020. To be a breast cancer survivor is incredibly humbling, and i’m filled with gratitude every day.”

Vicky also stresses the importance of regular screenings.

“So I would really encourage women to go out there, get their mammograms, talk to their doctors, and get any screenings available to them.”

October is breast cancer awareness month, and here at the Cheyenne Women’s Imaging pavilion, they offer screening services to better protect yourself against breast cancer.”

Yeah, mammography is extremely important because when we find breast cancer early, we can treat it very successfully. And if you or someone you know is unable to afford a mammogram the Wyoming department of health provides screenings for any Wyoming resident.

“The Wyoming cancer program receives funding from the centers for disease control and prevention, and we provide breast, cervical and colon cancer screenings for any Wyoming resident.”

There are plenty of options for women seeking breast cancer screenings in Wyoming and getting regularly screened can help prevent the spread of breast cancer.
