Access to preventative medical screenings and services remains a barrier for many women across the U.S. and in South Jersey. As a result, opportunities for detecting breast cancer early enough for positive outcomes are often missed, and developing tumors are left untreated.

Through the New Jersey Cancer Education and Early Detection (NJCEED) program and with the help of our philanthropic supporters, Virtua Health’s Mobile Mammography service removes these barriers for women in our community by providing free breast cancer screenings, education, support, resources and more. Specifically, the program addresses the need for life-saving cancer screenings for uninsured and underinsured women ages 40 to 64 across Burlington and Camden counties.

Virtua Health’s Mobile Mammography service brings a fully outfitted medical van and a team of experienced clinicians, educators and support staff to screening events at local community centers and religious institutions. Women who qualify can receive a free mammogram on-site, as well as referrals for other critical screenings for cervical and colorectal cancer. If a suspicious lump or mass is detected during the exam, the patient is connected to additional services and resources for diagnosis and treatment if needed.

With your philanthropic support, we can not only continue to provide free mammograms but also expand our services to offer cervical cancer screenings on-site, coordinated follow up for take-home colorectal cancer screening kits and more. Together, we can provide life-saving screenings and help women in our community survive cancer.
