The area’s first and only 3-D mobile mammograms!
To make mammograms more convenient and more accessible, Methodist Health System is offering the area's first and only 3-D mobile mammography coach.
Increased access to breast health screenings
Methodist takes this lifesaving technology to underserved neighborhoods, community centers and local businesses. Assistance will be available to women who cannot afford the screening or who may face scheduling conflicts. Mobile mammography serves approximately 16 women per day.
24 Nebraskans are diagnosed with breast cancer each week.
Access to mammograms for early detection and treatment of breast cancer has never been more important, yet Nebraska ranks a low 40th in the nation in the percentage of women 40 and older who report having a mammogram within the past two years.
Sections of Douglas and Saunders Counties have been named priority screening access areas by Susan G. Komen Great Plains due to dramatically higher rates of late-stage breast cancer diagnosis and death due to breast cancer.
A team effort
Methodist's push to make mobile mammography a reality in Omaha is a team effort that has drawn the enthusiastic sponsorship of Susan G. Komen Great Plains and a growing list of donors. The program’s lead donor is The Harper Family Foundation, which created Harper’s Hope, a comprehensive cancer survivorship program.
