Bonnie's Bus, the mobile mammography program of the WVU Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center and WVU Healthcare, Morgantown, WV, recently received a $35,000 grant from the West Virginia affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure to provide education and mammography screenings to women of color in West Virginia.

"This funding will allow us to reach out to all women of color to encourage them to have regular mammograms to reduce their mortality rate from breast cancer. It will also allow us to provide mammograms for any West Virginia women who have no insurance or other coverage," said Sara Jane Gainor, MBA, director of Bonnie's Bus.

"Early detection is the best way to reduce deaths from breast cancer."
