Martha Jefferson Hospital offered free breast health screenings Saturday for women who don't have insurance.

Fifty-six women got free check-ups thanks to The Women's Committee.

Doctors and technicians did lab work, breast exams and mammogram screenings for women who otherwise might not have been able to afford this care.

Women's Committee volunteers welcomed patients and made them feel comfortable.

"It is just imperative that women take care of themselves and the screenings are so important," Women's Committee member Didi Chapin said. "I was very fortunate to find my cancer early and that's what I tell people who come through."

The Women's Committee at Martha Jefferson offers these free clinics twice a year. The next will be in October.
