Countless lives amongst women across the county aged between 50 and 64 have undoubtedly saved thanks to the programme.
The BreastCheck mobile unit is presently based at the council offices car park in Letterkenny and is due to finish on October 7th.
The unit first started screening in the county in October 2009 after extensive lobbying by Donegal Action for Cancer Care.
Last night DACC’s Betty Holmes said the programme has been a huge success.
“The fact that more than 14,000 women in Donegal have had successful breast checks is a huge endorsement of the terrific work done by BreastCheck.
“Who knows how many lives have been saved through early detection thanks to this service,” she said.
BreastCheck is a Government-funded screening service that is offered to women aged between 50 and 64 every two years.
A mammogram is a simple procedure and an appointment only takes about half an hour in total.
BreastCheck encourages every woman in Donegal who receive an invitation for a mammogram to go for her appointment.
DACC would like to acknowledge the help & ongoing support to them of the National Cancer Screening Service.
They also want to encourage women aged 50-64 years of age to make sure they are registered with BreastCheck by phoning FREEPHONE number 1850 45 45 55 or checking on line at www,breastcheck.ie
