The GW Medical Faculty Associates (MFA) Mobile Mammography Program makes early detection for breast cancer accessible to underserved women across the metropolitan Washington, D.C. region. The Mammovan reaches women where they live and work and offers screenings without regard to ability to pay.
The GW Comprehensive Breast Center
Breast cancer takes patients down paths they never expected. For many, even getting an annual breast cancer screening can be an unsettling experience. That's why the GW Comprehensive Breast Center offers a comfortable, serene spa-like setting where women can receive a variety of preventive, diagnostic and treatment services for breast cancer.
The Mammovan in Numbers
When caught in early stages, breast cancer has nearly a 100% cure rate.
The Mammovan travels to 160 sites throughout the DC region.
Through our partners, The Mammovan brings lifesaving breast cancer screenings to approximately 2,500 women each year.
The GW Blush Lunch is the signature benefit supporting the GW Comprehensive Breast Center program of the GW MFA and its mobile mammography unit better known as The Mammovan. The event has raised more than one million dollars to deliver breast cancer screenings to women around metropolitan Washington D.C. regardless of their ability to pay.
