A similar event will be held November 2nd during the Market on Main in Cedartown from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“For many years, we’ve partnered with Chick-fil-A in Rome, and now in Rockmart, to spread awareness and encourage women to get screened,” said Aimee Griffin, Director of The Breast Center at Floyd and Director of Imaging Services for Floyd. “We firmly believe that knowledge is power, and we want to support all of northwest Georgia in saying KNOW to breast cancer.”
