RVs are not just for camping. They are frequently modified and drawn into serving the community in many different ways.

For more than a dozen years, Bonnie Fisher drives the  “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 logs in thousands of miles, taking the mobile unit throughout the Arkansas and Missouri region.  She conducts thousands of breast imaging services. Annually, 2,500 women received mammograms on the MMU.
