Helping Neighbors: F.I.S.H. OF SANCAP Sponsors Mobile Mammogram
Women of all ages will have local access to mammography services on Wed., Dec. 14 from 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. when FISH sponsors the Radiology Regional Center Mobile Mammogram, stationed at the Bailey’s General Store parking lot. This service is made possible through a partnership with The Zonta Foundation of SWFL Sanibel-Captiva Club, and is the last in the 2016 series of mobile mammogram offerings. 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. No prescription is necessary for this service, and FISH may be able to financially assist those who are under-insured, without insurance or with limited financial resources.
Through the FISH/Zonta partnership, FISH promotes the Radiology Regional Center Mobile Mammogram once quarterly, to give everyone the option to participate in this very important medical testing. Throughout the year, many women have utilized this potentially life-saving opportunity and are thankful for the ease and convenience of this service offered by FISH.
Mammograms continue 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. Those wishing to set up an appointment or learn more about the program may call Nitza Lopez, Case Manager at FISH, 239-472-4775. Each case is evaluated privately, on an individual and per instance basis, through a detailed intake process by FISH; there is no guarantee of financial assistance from FISH.
