As Breast Cancer Awareness Month gets underway, Mercy Health is bringing the mammogram to you with its mobile mammography bus. The American Cancer Society recommends women have a mammogram every year starting at age 40. It estimates more than 300,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year while another 40,000 will die from the disease. Mercy Health parked its mobile mammography bus at its Rookwood location in Oakley Tuesday morning to make it easy for women to get checked with a professional in just 15 minutes.
