HOUSTON--Just in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The University
of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center has unveiled a mobile mam-mography
program that will bring screening mammography to corporate and
community locations throughout the Houston area.
The LifeCheq Mobile Mammography Van, funded by a gift from the
Houston Chapter of The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation,
made its debut at the Race for the Cure October 5. This event,
sponsored by the Komen Foundation, benefits breast health care
and education and breast cancer research.
The van, staffed by M.D. Anderson personnel, can be reserved by
Texas companies and community organizations that wish to provide
on-site screening mammography for their female employees or members.
