Bonnie’s Bus, a digital mammography center on wheels, will visit Gilmer and Harrison counties later this month to offer digital mammograms and breast care education to women.
A service of West Virginia University Healthcare and the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center, Bonnie’s Bus will be at the Gilmer County Health Department from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 18 and 19. For an appointment in Glenville call 304-462-7351. The following day, the bus will be at the Lumberport Pharmacy in Harrison County from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 20. For an appointment in Lumberport call 304-584-4210.
The mammograms are billed to private insurance, Medicaid or Medicare if available.
Mammograms for women who do not have insurance will be covered by the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program or through special grant funds.
According to information from West Virginia University Healthcare, no woman older than 40 will be turned away due to lack of funding. A physician’s order is needed for a mammogram.
