Mammos & Mimosas event to return to GRMC this Saturday
Posted on 10/5/2018 8:29:00 AM.
(Seguin) -- GRMC is again raising a toast to prevention during its second annual Mammos & Mimosas. Guadalupe Regional Medical Center will be offering free-flowing mimosas this Saturday as part of the breast cancer awareness effort.

Chelsea Maldonado, director of marketing, says not only will women get to learn the latest in 3D mammogram technology, but they'll also have two hours of shopping and pampering.

"Mammos & Mimosas started last year and it started when we were thinking about breast cancer month in October and what we would want to do. GRMC has 3D mammography and so it is the highest technology that you can get for mammograms. So, we thought -- well how do we let people know that we have this technology here and invite them in and let's find a fun event so we came up with Mammos & Mimosas and it is just a two hour event. We have free flowing Mimosas again. We have vendors here. They are anywhere from local physicians to local shops and you can come and you can be pampered. We are going to have massage stations -- so just looking really at having that education of breast health but then also that relaxing pampering environment for women to come and bring their girlfriends for just a few hours and have some fun," said Maldonado.

Some limited mammograms have already been pre-scheduled for Saturday. However, Maldonado says when it comes to getting screened, GRMC is committed to doing what it can to help women secure an appointment.

"We only have so many slots available for that day. But let's say you come into the event and you say 'you know what, I want to sign up to get my mammogram.' We do have a place where you can register and then we will contact your primary care physician to get that order back to us so you can get a mammogram. So even if you aren't scheduled that day to receive one, there is still a table at the event where you can sign-up to make sure you are on the list," said Maldonado.

Mammos & Mimosas will be held from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday in the GRMC Central Entrance Lobby.
