Changing Families: Mammogram guidelines change, Friendly's Cones for Kids kicks off


CONCORD - There are new mammogram guidelines released by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force.

The guidelines states that mammograms do the most good later in life, and that average-risk women should get mammograms every other year between age 50 and 74.

It also states that women in their 40s benefit less but should make their own choice. Late last year the the American Cancer Society upped its starting age to 45. But if you have a family history, it is recommended to get checked sooner.


This week, Friendly's Ice Cream launches its 35th annual 'Cones for Kids' campaign running now through February 13th.

For a $1 donation you get five Valentine's Day cards. Each are redeemable for a single ice cream cone. It all benefits Easter Seals programs for children throughout New Hampshire.
