MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Bonnie’s Bus, a digital mammography center on wheels, will visit Pleasants County offering digital mammograms and breast care education to women.

A service of WVU Healthcare and the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center, Bonnie’s Bus will be at the Mid-Ohio Valley Health Department in St. Marys from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 23.  For an appointment, call 304-684-2461.

The mammograms are billed to private insurance, Medicaid or Medicare if available. Mammograms for women who do not have insurance will be covered by the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program (WVBCCSP) or through special grant funds from the West Virginia affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. No woman over 40 is turned away due to lack of funding.  A physician’s order is needed for a mammogram.
