Mobile mammography unit to make several visits

Francine's Friends Mobile Mammography has announced several upcoming visits to the Huntington County area.

They will be held Wednesday, April 16, at American Specialty, 142 N. Main St., Roanoke and Thursday, May 29, at Curves in Huntington, located at 2819 Walmart Drive.

Appointments should be scheduled prior to the date. For an appointment, call 483-1847 or 800-727-8439, ext. 26540. Walk-in openings are available depending on schedule.

The Breast Diagnostic Center (BDC) performs the screening. For women who have insurance, they will bill the insurance company. If the patient does not have insurance but has the ability to pay, the BDC offers a reduced rate if paid the day of the screening. For women without insurance, a high deductible, or resources to pay, funding is available.
