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, and under- or uninsured women who qualify for the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program. Also, uninsured women living in West Virginia who are 40 and older can receive a screening mammogram on the Bus through the generosity of grant funding and donations.
Since 2009 Bonnie’s Bus has:
- Provided over 21,500 mammograms
- Detected over 110 cases of breast cancer
- Traveled more than 180,000 miles
- Funded over 1,700 mammograms through grants and donations
- Completed over 1,200 screening days.
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.
