Fox Chase Mobile Mammography Van to Visit Councilman O’Neill’s Office

Fox Chase Mobile Mammography

August 26, 2014

Update: This event has been cancelled.

PHILADELPHIA, PA (August 26, 2014)—On Friday, September 19 at 8:00 a.m. Fox Chase Cancer Center’s mobile mammography van – which brings breast cancer screening right into the community – will visit Councilman Brian O’Neill’s neighborhood office at The Fraternal Order of Police, Lodge #5 (11630 Caroline Road).

The mobile mammography van provides an easy way for women to get their mammograms. It uses digital mammography, which offers very clear pictures that can be immediately given to the doctors who read the images. This type of mammography can also show small growths that other types of x-rays do not find.

Councilman O’Neill and Fox Chase are working together to increase the availability of this vital screening. Women who are interested in a mammography screening must be at least 40 years of age and have a prescription from their doctor to qualify.

To schedule an appointment or for more information, please contact one of Councilman O’Neill’s three offices, FOP "Heroes Hall" headquarters at 11630 Caroline Road (215-437-9167), Bustleton and Bowler above the 7th Police District (215-685-0432), or 562 City Hall (215-686-3422).
