MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) - A mobile mammogram clinic is saving lives in the Mid-South.
One in eight women is affected by breast cancer. Early detection is still the best preventative medicine.
Georgetta Carr credits Baptist's Mobile Mammography Unit with putting her on the road to recovery.
"I made the appointment, came to the unit, and it took all of about 15 minutes," she said.
Carr is a wife and mother of two kids, with a high profile job at Medtronic.
"Since I have been getting mammograms, I have always come to this unit. I will call to have the mammograms unit to come on site at the job because everyone is so busy," she said.
In May, Georgetta's mammogram showed something unusual. Her doctors detected breast cancer.
"My mass was fairly small, 1.4 centimeters," she said. "However, because I had a history, they had a baseline so they could quickly see a difference."
Baptist's Mobile Mammography Unit is the only one in Memphis. If your insurance is accepted at Baptist facilities, you are automatically covered.
"We know how busy we are with working families and we want to make sure with health care, that they have access," said Mandy Payne, Baptist Women's Health.
Civic groups and churches can request the vehicle to come on site as long as you have 12 people who would like to be checked out.
Each exam takes about 15 minutes. That 15 minutes made a tremendous difference for Georgetta Carr.
"Take the time to get your mammogram," she said. "And if they call you back, don't be afraid. If you are diagnosed with it, forge forward."
The Baptist Mobile Mammography Unit will be at the Millington Kroger on Highway 51 Tuesday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. It will be at the Bartlett Prescription Shop on Stage Road on Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
If you would like to see the unit at your event, call (901) 226-0832.
