Mobile Mammography to be in Roanoke

Posted: Thursday, March 29, 2012

Francine’s Friends Mobile Mammography unit will be in Roanoke for women interested in scheduling a mammogram. On Wednesday, April 11, the mobile unit will be at American Specialties, 142 N. Main Street, Roanoke.

Screening mammography is for women who:

* Are age 40 and older and have not had a mammogram screening in the past 12 months
* Are currently not experiencing any breast cancer or problems with their breasts
* Are insured or uninsured

The Breast Diagnostic Center (BDC) performs the screening. For women who have insurance, the insurance company will be billed. If patients do not have insurance but have the ability to pay, the BDC offers a reduced rate if paid the day of the screening. For women without insurance, a high deductible or who do not have the resources to pay, funding is available.

To schedule a mammogram appointment with Francine’s Friends Mobile Mammography unit, call 1-800-727-8439, ext. 26540, or (260) 483-1847. For more information on Francine’s Friends, visit its website at www.FrancinesFriends.org.
