An important milestone: 1,000 days on the road


The mobile mammography coach celebrated its 1,000th site visit on Tuesday, May 25, 2010, at Wal-Mart in Huntington. This milestone marked 1,000 days of visits since we started December 5, 2005. One thousand days of:
  • Bringing lifesaving screening technology to more than 11,000 women, making annual mammograms convenient.
  • Providing funding for women without insurance or sufficient means to pay.
  • Dedicating 15 minutes to safeguarding the health of each woman who trusts her care to our experts at the Breast Diagnostic Center and the radiologists of FWRadiology.
Thank you to our service providers, generous program supporters – Francine’s Friends, the Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust Fund, Vera Bradley, the Susan G. Komen Foundation – and countless others who donate to the cause so we can continue to provide mammograms for women in northeast Indiana.
