Free mammograms in Ballard

“Early detection and aggressive treatment” is Judy Anderson’s mantra. As a 22-year breast cancer survivor and volunteer for several cancer organizations, she has helped many women through their battle with the disease. With unemployment on the rise and health benefits being cut women are forced to make tough healthcare decisions like foregoing their annual breast cancer screening. That’s why King5 and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance have teamed up to offer free mammograms to those in need.

The SCCA Mobile Mammography Service will be at the Ballard Safeway (15th & Market) parking lot on Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. To find out if you’re eligible for a free mammogram, call SCCA at (206) 288-7800. (Thanks ICU_RN for posting in the forum!)

If they find someone that needs further testing, is there a place that does it free or charge or low cost?

Since UW Medicine is a part of the Cancer Care Alliance, I believe those who may need further treatment will be directed to either UW Medical Center or Harborview Medical Center, both accept patients who are poor or uninsured.

I believe SCCA is Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. There was a bit on KING 5 News this morning about them and the free mammograms.

World class cancer center in our own backyard … but not in Ballard.
