ISSAQUAH, Oct 4, 2011 – In light of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Shops at Swedish/Issaquah are hosting a unique, complimentary event for women on Tuesday, Oct. 25 from 6-9 p.m. in the first-floor atrium of the new medical center, which is located at 751 N.E. Blakely Dr. in the Issaquah Highlands neighborhood.
Did you know eight out of 10 women wear the wrong bra size? Come meet our expert fitters and receive a free ‘Perfect Fit’ bra fitting. Get the individualized attention you deserve, and allow us to find the bra that fits you best. Each woman who has a fitting receives a 10-percent discount off all lingerie in the Perfect Fit boutique during the event (excluding durable medical equipment).
In addition, women can meet the staff and learn more about Swedish’s mammography and women’s breast-imaging services. From screening and diagnostic mammograms, to the latest in breast-cancer treatments, Swedish/Issaquah offers the full spectrum in breast care under one roof.
