ADEL, GA (WALB) - One south Georgia hospital is dedicating an entire day to women on Saturday.

The Memorial Hospital of Adel is having "A Day for Divas."

Ladies of all ages can get health screenings, breast exams, mini-massages and manicures, at no cost.

Kids can even get their teddy bears or baby dolls a check-up. Nurses are wearing pink gloves all month to bring awareness to breast cancer.

"Early detection is the best protection and that's what we're trying to convey to the community, said Megan Powell, Memorial Hospital marketing department.  "If you do catch it early there's a good survival rate for women who do detect it early."

There will be a fashion show at 11 with breast cancer survivors, and the Cook County cheerleaders will model fall fashions.

The annual wellness workshop is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
