Get your mammogram on the go!

The Exchange: Spectrum Good to Go

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - While breast cancer will affect one in eight women during her lifetime, with early detection, the survival rate is over 90 percent.

Spectrum Health and the American College of Radiology urge you to get a mammogram every year once you reach the age of 40.

Spectrum Health’s Betty Ford Breast Care Services has 14 locations conveniently located throughout West Michigan -- and now you can schedule your mammogram on the go!

Elaine Bower, Director at Betty Ford Breast Care Services and Tanya Horan, Vice President of Development at Komen of Michigan, stopped by The Exchange to tell us about Spectrum Health’s mobile mammography program.

To schedule a mammogram at any of the 14 Betty Ford Breast Cancer Services locations or the mobile unit, call 877-495-2626.

Free mammograms are available for those who are uninsured or under-insured. To find out if you qualify, call 616-486-6050.
