WOMEN'S HEALTH 

In the last decade, the survival rate for breast cancer has significantly increased. As of 2022, the survival rate for localized breast cancer is 99% and the survival rate for metastasis breast cancer is 86%. The increase in survival rate can be attributed to early detection. In addition cervical cancer was once one of the most common causes of cancer death for American women. The cervical cancer death rate dropped significantly with the increased use of the Pap test. VACF would like to take part in fighting breast cancer by offering clinical breast exam and mobile mammogram. 

Free Clinical Breast Exam (CBE) 

Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women in the United States. The leading prevention of breast cancer is early detection; therefore, VACF is determined to take part in reducing the incident rate of breast cancer by providing clinical breast exam.

Free &
Low-Cost Mammogram 

The mobile mammogram's main goal is to serve the low-income community by providing free screening as well as patient navigation if needed. 

Cervical Health 

Cervical cancer can often be found early, and sometimes even prevented, by having regular screening tests. If detected early, cervical cancer is one of the most successfully treatable cancers.
