Mission:
The American-Italian Cancer Foundation's (AICF) mobile No-Cost Breast Cancer Screening Program is open to economically disadvantaged and medically underserved women age 40 and over who have not had a mammogram in the last 12 months. The large mobile clinic travels to neighborhoods throughout the five boroughs to provide mammograms, clinical breast exams, instruction in breast self exam, and educational information to those who do not make annual screenings for breast cancer a priority.
During the last 23 years, AICF has provided screening services for over 75,000 women.
AICF's Mobile Mammography Program brings breast cancer screening directly to the women most in need of no-cost services. In addition to eliminating economic and transportation barriers, the Program eliminates cultural and linguistic hurdles to health care access by partnering with trusted groups in various communities. AICF works with an extensive network of over 200 community centers, religious institutions, schools, senior centers, elected officials, health care providers, and other organizations to offer services to the women that these groups already serve.
