One in eight women will get breast cancer. Early detection is the best defense. In Louisiana, the fight against breast cancer is compounded because many women do not have access to the healthcare and screening they need. As a result, Louisiana has the highest mortality rate from breast cancer in the nation. Woman’s has taken that fight on the road with its Mammography Coach.
Woman’s Mammography Coach
Woman’s Mammography Coach reduces geographic and financial barriers to care
by bringing breast care directly to women, including those who lack transportation or health insurance.
Since 2006, Woman’s Mammography Coach has performed more than 40,000 mammograms. In 2016, Woman’s Mammography Coach:
- Diagnosed breast cancer in 24 women.
- Served 4,389 women, of which 50 percent were uninsured or underinsured.
- Traveled 16,440 miles in 21 parishes for a total of 150 trips.

We Need Your Help! It costs $535,000 annually to keep Woman’s Mammography Coach on the road.
Woman’s has purchased a second mammography coach that is outfitted with the latest 3D mammography technology. This second coach should be on the road this month. This will allow even more women to be screened each year and travel to more parishes throughout the state.
