Get a life-saving checkup 

The Joanie Abdu Mobile Mammography Van offers 3D mammography, which detects 41% more invasive breast cancers while also reducing unnecessary callbacks because it allows doctors to examine breast tissue layer-by-layer, in multiple views, with fine details more visible.

Details on how to sign up are coming soon. 

Mammograms are covered by most health insurance plans. You may be eligible for financial assistance if you have no insurance or have a high deductible. More information to come.
