HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Belk and Charlotte Radiology are doing their part to fight breast cancer with the BelkGives Go Mobile Mammography Center. They will be visiting the Belk stores in North Myrtle Beach, Murrells Inlet and Georgetown during the second week of January to offer free mammogram screenings.

Women age 40 and over with no breast concerns, who have not had a mammogram in the last 12 months and have a primary care physician are eligible by calling 855-655-BMMC (2662) to schedule an appointment. The dates and locations are:

Tuesday, January 7, 2014, 9:30 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.  Belk of North Myrtle Beach, SC

Thursday, January 9, 2014, 9:30 a.m. – 7:00 p.m.  Belk of Murrells Inlet, SC

Saturday, January 11, 2014, 9:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.  Belk of Georgetown, SC

All screening exams will be performed by Charlotte Radiology's licensed, female mammography-certified technologists. A board-certified radiologist, specialized in breast imaging will interpret the mammogram. Confidential results will be sent to the patient and her primary care physician.

Belk's $6 million investment in this program marks the retailer's deep commitment to women's health issues and breast cancer education and is the company's single largest charitable contribution to date. Belk is the only retailer of its kind to form a partnership alongside community and health organizations by extending breast cancer screening and increasing breast cancer awareness through its own operation.
