Getting a biopsy? Get a gift bag

Posted: Updated:

 

With information from Phoebe Putney

The Carlton Breast Health Center at Phoebe Putney does more than 400 breast biopsies a year, and leaders think that gift bag will help make the process a little more comfortable.

 

So, they're giving them away.

Albany's Junior Woman's Club paid for the contents of the insulated goodie bags, which include a water bottle, crackers, mints, fuzzy socks and an inspirational book.

The Carlton Breast Health Center issues about eight bags a week.

WALB will have more on this story in our evening news.
