Helping Neighbors: F.I.S.H. of Sanibel-Captiva, Inc. Sponsors Mobile Mammogram
Women of all ages will have local access to mammography services on Thurs., May 12 from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. when FISH sponsors the Radiology Regional Center Mobile Mammogram for the island community. Mammograms are x-rays of the breast, continuing to be the gold standard and the key to life-saving early detection of breast cancer. Early detection allows for a greater number of options for treatment and a better chance of survival. The Radiology Regional Center’s Mobile Mammography Coach is a customized, mobile breast-imaging clinic, bringing the latest technology in digital mammography directly to you. Convenience, state of the art technology, and exceptional quality are the reasons why women choose this service.
The FISH sponsored mobile mammography trailer will be stationed at the Bailey’s General Store parking lot. This service is made possible through a partnership with The Zonta Foundation of SWFL. Those wishing to book an appointment or learn more about the program may call Christine or Jessi at the FISH Walk-In-Center at 239-472-4775. No prescription is necessary for this service, and FISH may be able to provide financial assistance to those without insurance or with limited financial resources. All financial assistance cases must first go through a detailed intake process and provide certain financial documentation to FISH. Each case is evaluated privately, on an individual and per instance basis. There is no guarantee of financial assistance from FISH.
