The KNIA/KRLS 4th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Radiothon kicked off last night at the Knoxville Hospital and Clinics Bell Avenue Clinic. Dr. Bob Leonard spoke with health professionals about breast cancer and operators were on hand to help callers make appointments for mammograms.

Genni Heffron, Director of Clinic Services at Knoxville Hospital and Clinics tells KNIA/KRLS news so far this month they have scheduled more than 100 mammograms and due to the overwhelming popularity of their special late night mammogram clinic they set up a second event which is also almost full.

The radiothon continues Thursday as the KNIA/KRLS Big Red Radio will be at Pella Regional Health Center and you can listen to the program from 4-8pm on KNIA/KRLS.
