Mobile Mammography

We need your help to make life-saving breast cancer screenings accessible for all women across northeast Ohio! The Mercy Health Foundation is raising $1.5 million to purchase and equip a 40-foot coach that will provide mobile mammography services for women, right in their own community or at their place of work.

Busy women, those without medical insurance or who lack transportation too often skip this important annual screening. Mammograms are the first line of defense for detecting breast cancer in its earliest and most treatable stages.

Donate today to make Mobile Mammography available as soon as possible for women in and around Lorain.
