Bonnie's Bus Mobile Mammography Scheduled to be in Clarksburg Friday; Details on Participating Here

By Connect-Bridgeport Staff on November 07, 2019 via Connect-Bridgeport.com

Bonnie’s Bus, a 45-foot, state-of-the-art mobile mammography vehicle, will visit Harrison County offering three-dimensional (3D) digital mammograms and breast care education to women.
 
A service of WVU Medicine and the WVU Cancer Institute, Bonnie’s Bus will be at: 
 
Health Access, parked at the First United Methodist Church, 117 North Second Street, Clarksburg, Friday, Nov. 8, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Call 304-622-2708 to make an appointment. A doctor's order is required for screening. 
 
The mammograms are billed to private insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare, if available. Mammograms for women who are under- or uninsured will be covered by the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program (WVBCCSP) or through grant funds and donations. No West Virginia woman over 40 is turned away due to lack of funding. 
 
Bonnie’s Bus hit the road in 2009. Since that time, the Bus has provided more than 18,600 mammograms for women throughout West Virginia and led to the detection of 87 cases of breast cancer. Many of those screened are uninsured or underinsured and qualified for screening through the WVBCCSP. 
 
Bonnie’s Bus works in collaboration with a statewide partnership of clinicians, public health professionals, women’s groups, and other community leaders working to help reduce the number of deaths from breast cancer in West Virginia.
  
Made possible by a generous gift from West Virginia natives Jo and Ben Statler to the Cancer Institute, Bonnie’s Bus is operated in partnership with WVU Hospitals. The Bus is named after Jo Statler’s late mother, Bonnie Wells Wilson.
