“It’s to have a celebration of the survivors and establish a network of people to get out and talk about breast cancer,” Lindemann said.
The West Florida Mammography Unit will be parked at Sole Inn and Suites for tours along with staff from Diagnostic Imaging and the West Florida Cancer Center who will distribute important health information and give-away items. A customized 37-foot coach containing state-of-the-art digital technology and CAD (Computer-Aided Detection) mammography equipment, the Mobile Mammography Unit makes getting a mammogram more convenient for women in our area. It travels throughout the region bringing quality mammography services to women where they are: at work, club or church meetings, health fairs, West Florida Primary Care offices and other community locations.
“If we could reach just one woman, who is afraid to get a mammogram, to get one that would be wonderful,” Lindemann said.
In addition, local artist Dan Lindemann has created a unique work of art that highlights the fact that one in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. The art work will be unveiled and auctioned off with the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. There will also be a live band and light refreshments will be available.
