The Breast Screening Bus is reaching the end of the road after delivering more than 250,000 mammograms to women in rural and remote communities across this province.

Both the 20-year old vehicle and the digital mammography machine need to be replaced and upgraded.

Of the breast cancer cases detected, 75% were diagnosed at an early stage allowing for more treatment options, greater survival rates and better outcomes for breast cancer patients. Screening saves lives.

You can also allocate your donation to support Breast Cancer Research that is being done, right here, in Saskatchewan!

Thanks to research finding new treatment options and screening mammograms detecting breast cancer sooner, patients diagnosed with breast cancer are living longer. The 5 year net survival rate has increased from 20% in the 1990’s to 89% today.
