Free cancer screenings offered by American-Italian Cancer Foundation
A mobile cancer screening program is not letting the snowstorm interfere with its travels to provide breast cancer screenings today for Brooklyn women in need.
The American-Italian Cancer Foundation travels through the five boroughs providing breast cancer screenings at no cost.
The foundation uses data from the Department of Health to target areas with large populations of women diagnosed with breast cancer, in an effort to promote early detection and women's health.
Staff says the mobile program can screen as many as 40 women a day, and that all of the women who walk in are grateful for the services, especially those who are uninsured.
