Mobile Mammogram Unit Next Stop: White Cloud
Gerber Memorial brings mammogram on wheels to White Cloud July 7 to encourage cancer screenings
Fremont- Spectrum Health Gerber Memorial will bring a mobile mammogram unit to White Cloud on July 7 in an effort to encourage women to get screened for breast cancer, especially women in the Croton area who may face challenges getting to the hospital in Fremont.
A service of Spectrum Health Betty Ford Breast Care Services, the mobile unit will be parked at 103 North Charles Street in White Cloud, in the parking lot of Sally’s Restaurant from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Because the mobile unit can take a limited number of patients, women are asked to make an appointment to reserve a spot, by calling 616.774.7998, option 1. Walk-ins will be accepted if space is available. Women who schedule appointments are asked to bring insurance information.
Free mammograms will be available for uninsured or under-insured women. For women who want to see if they qualify, call 616.486.6050.
Breast cancer will affect one in eight women during her lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society. When detected early, breast cancer can be treated and cured. The American Cancer Society recommends women 40 years and older have a mammogram once a year.
