WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) — News 4 is partnering with Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center for this year’s Mammothon.

Between October 3-7, Roswell Park is encouraging 400 women to schedule a mammogram. The two-day live drive event is happening October 4 and 5.

Roswell Park says women should take part in yearly mammograms once they turn 40. They say that with routine mammograms, a woman’s risk of dying from breast cancer is reduced by 30 to 50 percent.
