People, Places & Events

Four Mile Lutheran Church hosts ‘Life Line Screening’ Aug. 18
Special to The Monitor
GUN BARREL CITY–Residents living in and around the Gun Barrel City community can be screened to reduce their risk of having a stroke or bone fracture.
Four Mile Lutheran Church will host Life Line Screening Thursday, Aug. 18. The site is located at 460 VZ County Road 2607 in Mabank.
Heino Erichsen from The Woodlands participated in a Life Line Screening event in January, 2009, and learned that he had an abdominal aortic aneurysm and a blockage in his carotid artery.
He writes, “Thank you for saving my life!”
Four key points every person needs to know:
• Stroke is the third leading cause of death and a leading cause of permanent disability.
• 80 percent of stroke victims had no apparent warning signs prior to their stroke.
• Preventive ultrasound screenings can help you avoid a stroke..
• Screenings are fast, non-invasive, painless, affordable and convenient.
Screenings identify potential cardiovascular conditions such as blocked arteries and irregular heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysms, and hardening of the arteries in the legs, which is a strong predictor of heart disease.
A bone density screening to assess osteoporosis risk is also offered and is appropriate for both men and women.
Packages start at $139. All five screenings take 60-90 minutes to complete.
For more information regarding the screenings or to schedule an appointment, please call 1-877-237-1287 or visit our website at www.lifelinescreening.com.  Pre-registration is required. Life Line Screening comes to Mabank Aug. 18.
