Many women in rural Nevada have never had a mammogram. Fear, lack of funds, transportation conflicts, or no insurance are just some of the reasons women have not protected themselves against breast cancer. Yet, we know that early detection of breast cancer saves lives.
The Mammovan will be visiting Carson City, Nev. on Saturday, July 28th, from 7:45 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. offering mammograms to women who are 40 years of age or older. Most insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, Women’s Health Connection are accepted and through the kind support of several organizations, mammograms will be available to low-income, uninsured women at no cost to them. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call, 1-877-581-6266.
The Mammovan is a program of Nevada Health Centers, Inc. and the mammograms are supported through generous grants from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure southern and northern Affiliates, The David and Linda Shaheen Foundation, Smith’s Food & Drug Stores, Inc., the Safeway Foundation, The National Breast Cancer Foundation, The Caesar’s Foundation and others.
