Bonnie's Bus is a mobile mammography unit that travels across West Virginia, offering breast cancer screening in a comfortable, convenient environment. In 2011, Bonnie's Bus provided mammograms in 95 screening days with an average of 16 women screened per day.
The Bus serves women who have private insurance, Medicaid, and Medicare, and uninsured women who are participants in the WV Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening program.
Bonnie's Bus was created in honor of Bonnie Wells Wilson the mother of Jo Statler, who succumbed to breast cancer in a remote area of the state with no access to screening mammography. Bonnie's Bus has a mission to provide breast cancer screening services to women in West Virginia, especially those in rural parts of the state with limited or no access to screening mammography.
With funding from grants and donations, mammograms are provided for women without coverage, so that no woman over the age of 40 is ever turned away; age 40 is the recommended age to begin screening mammograms.
Bonnie's Bus works in close partnership with the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program (WVBCCSP) which provides screening services to uninsured or underinsured women whose income, by federal guidelines, is at or below 200% of the national poverty level.
