Pamper Mom...after her mammogram

Blessing Cancer Center is celebrating moms this week.

Tuesday, anyone who walks through its doors for a mammogram gets pampered.

The second annual Mamms for Moms event will take place from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Blessing Cancer Center, at 927 Broadway in Quincy. With every mammogram, women can get massages, skin screenings, raffles and goody bags. And better yet, those pampered gifts come free of charge.

It's a small incentive the center hopes will help bring early detection in the nearly 1 in 8 women who will get diagnosed with breast cancer this year.

Space is limited for the Mamms for Moms event, so you're asked to call to make a reservation ahead of time.
