EDISON - Every woman in New Jersey will eventually be prescribed a mammogram.

The potentially lifesaving procedure takes just minutes. Yet, many women put it off for weeks, months, or even years.

News 12 New Jersey reporter Marci Rubin was one of them. But for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Marci decided it was time to have it done. And she's taking the viewers with her.

In this exclusive News 12 New Jersey interview, hear from Rosemary Scoppetuolo, Administrative Director at Barnabas Breast Center in Livingston, about what a mammogram is used for, and why so many women put off this vitally important procedure for so long.

On Wednesday, Oct. 17, Marci's full report "My First Mammogram" will air in the 5 p.m. broadcast.

This interview is also available on News 12 Extra on Optimum TV channel 612.
