Bonnie’s Bus is a mobile mammography unit that travels across West Virginia, offering breast cancer screening in a comfortable, convenient environment. The Bus serves women who have private insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, as well as uninsured women who qualify for the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program. Grant funds and donations are available to pay for women without coverage, so that no woman age 40 or over is ever turned away.
Individuals and communities in West Virginia can submit a request for Bonnie’s Bus to come to their area to provide mammograms. There is no cost to organizations to host Bonnie’s Bus. The Bus runs on its own generator, and requires a hard, flat space at least 40 feet long with 13 feet of overhead clearance. Because it weighs 40,000 pounds, the parking area must have a solid surface, like concrete or pavement. Communities and organizations interested in hosting Bonnie’s Bus can call 304-293-2370 or 877-287-2272.
