Free chocolate bars for mammogram's in South Bend


Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center and The South Bend Chocolate Company are teaming up to provide a sweet incentive for women to schedule a mammogram throughout the month of October.  In honor of October being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The South Bend Chocolate Company is giving free chocolate bars to women who schedule their mammogram's this month aboard SJRMC's Mobile Medical Unit.

The program was kicked off on Tuesday, outside the Chocolate Factory in South Bend.  Mammographer Denise Hammerquist believes any extra help getting a women a mammogram is worth it.  "It's an extra little incentive to get women to come out and get their mammogram." Hammerquist said, "we have a tendency to put it off, we are too busy and they just need to get their mammogram every year."

Details and locations where the MMU will be located throughout the month of October can be found on the SJRMC web site at To schedule an appointment, please call 574-247-5400.
