I mentioned previously that 26 Arkansas counties lack FDA-approved certified mammography facilities. Because of generous organizations, one being Susan G. Komen, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) is able to travel around the state in the MammoVan. The MammoVan is a mobile mammography unit that travels the state to provide digital screening mammograms and breast care education. It has three rooms, is handicapped accessible and has the most advanced digital mammography equipment.
I think it’s really neat and a great idea! Many lives will be saved as a result of the outreach that UAMS is doing through the MammoVan. So, what are you waiting for? Click here and make a donation so that the MammoVan can continue to cruise the streets and roll right over breast cancer.
Peace and Love
