Only 56% of women ages 45 and older in Alaska had up-to-date mammograms in 2020. The Breast Cancer Detection Center of Alaska (BCDC), founded in Fairbanks in 1976, continues its mission to change this pattern by delivering screenings and educational programs on monthly self-exams throughout the state.
Its Mobile Mammography Truck travels to communities in need from March through October and offers services to all, regardless of the ability to pay. A partial grant is available to cover costs plus there’s a “pay what you can” option. Call 907-479-3909 to request breast cancer mobile services in your area.
