A mobile mammography coach visited downtown Decatur on Monday as part of a collaborative public-private partnership with one goal — giving women early detection in the fight against breast cancer.
The mammography coach travels throughout northeast Indiana each year and has performed some 30,000 screenings since 2005, according to Debi Kennedy, community outreach coordinator at Parkview Hospital in Fort Wayne.
The coach is made possible through the combined efforts of Parkview Hospital, the Breast Diagnostic Center of Fort Wayne, and a grassroots group of Fort Wayne-area volunteers known as Francine's Friends.
