“One in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime... Early detection and treatment of breast cancer leads to higher survival rates. Through Baptist Women’s Health Center’s mobile mammography unit, we can connect women to accessible breast care, education and resources. Not having insurance or access to care should never be a barrier to getting your mammogram and this is the barrier we want to eliminate.”
