Free gas card for women who get screened for cancer

by Krystal Paco

Guam - If you're a woman who's never undergone a pap test or pelvic exam, the Guam Regional Medical City is giving you incentive to do so.

The island's new hospital slated to open doors later this year is teaming up with the American Cancer Society Guam Field Office and the Department of Public Health as well as local health centers to give out $25 gas cards to women aged 21 and above for having their first pap test and/or pelvic exam.

Such screenings are proven effective at detecting these cancers and saving lives.

The offer runs through March 15 and falls in line with January designated as Cervical Health Month.

For more information, call at 649-4764.
