MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The WVU Cancer Institute will host a cancer screening from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 18, at the Mary Babb Randolph Cancer Center.
The event will offer free screenings for breast, oral, and skin cancer; low-cost screenings for lung and cervical cancer; and lab testing, including blood, urine, and metabolic panels.
Bonnie’s Bus will be available to offer mammography for women who have private insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, as well as under or uninsured women who qualify for the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program.
