Many women in rural Nevada have never had a mammogram. Fear, lack of funds, transportation conflicts or no insurance are the main reasons women have not protected their health with this breast cancer screening process. Yet, we know that early detection of breast cancer saves lives.

The Mammovan will be visiting the Safeway Store in Hawthorne on March 23 offering mammograms to geographically isolated and uninsured women. Through the kind support of several organizations, mammograms will be available by appointment, for age and income eligible, at no charge.

The Mammovan is a program of Nevada Health Centers, and the mammograms are supported through generous grants from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Northern, the First Lady's Fund, The David and Linda Shaheen Foundation, Smith's Food and Drug Stores, Inc., Safeway Foundation, The Harrah's Foundation, Inc., and the Women's Health Connection Program. Insured, uninsured, Medicare and Medicaid women will be served.

The Mammovan is scheduled for:
