Mobile mammography bus coming to the Chippewa Valley

CHIPPEWA VALLEY, Wis. (WEAU)- A new tool to help women in the fight against breast cancer is making its way to the Chippewa Valley.

You have the chance to tour the mobile mammography bus throughout the week.

In June, HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s Hospitals and Prevea Health received a donation to fund a mobile mammography bus that will travel to rural areas and outlying clinics to help service women in those areas. This unit is scheduled to begin operations in spring of 2020. Until then, a similar life-saving bus will be in the area to give folks a chance to see what it will be like.
