Representatives with the program say more than 7,400 women have been served and 30 cases of cancer have been detected in the two years they've had the Mobile Mammography Center on the road.
The program has served women throughout the Southeast.

Women age 40 and over with no breast concerns , who have not had a mammogram in the last 12 months and have a primary physician, are eligible by calling 855-655-BMMC (2662) to schedule an appointment.
