Curves women’s fitness centers in Los Angeles County are giving away a breast self-exam kit to women who try the new Curves workout system during the month of October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The free Liv Aid tool greatly enhances a woman’s ability to detect an abnormality, which in many cases will lead to early detection and a better chance for a cure. Both local Curves locations are taking part in the program. The Signal Hill center, located at 2201 E. Willow Street, can be reached at (562) 997-1999. The participating Long Beach center, located at 4102 Orange Avenue #108, can be reached at (562) 988-7962.
