RV serves as ‘Mobile Mammography Unit’


RVs are not just recreation vehicles … they are frequently modified and drawn into serving the community in many different ways.

“For nine years, Bonnie Fisher has driven her Mobile Mammography Unit (MMU), a high-tech recreational vehicle, to businesses in a 50-mile radius of Mountain Home (Arkansas) to save women’s lives,” writes Deb Peterson in the Baxter Bulletin newspaper.

Fisher has logged thousands of miles, taking the mobile unit around the region, conducting thousands of mammograms.

In 2008 alone, 2,500 women received mammograms on the MMU.
