Senator Lanza Announces 2020 Calendar of Free Mammography Screenings

Lanza with Wagner College Nursing Students

Senator Andrew Lanza continues his partnership with Project Renewal’s Scan Van Program to provide free mammography screenings and clinical breast exams to women 40 and over across Staten Island. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of death among women in New York State and until the cause and cure is found, the best tool in the fight against breast cancer is education and early detection.

Each year in New York over 16,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and over 2,500 die from the disease. A mammogram can detect breast cancer almost 24 months before it can be manually detected, facilitating earlier diagnosis and treatment, which increases the chance of survival. While great strides have been made in the early detection and treatment of breast cancer – and many diagnosed with the disease are living long, healthy lives – the fight against this deadly disease is far from over.

Senator Lanza and Project Renewal have helped connect thousands of women with this early detection service. Senator Lanza and Project Renewal are committed to educating women about the risks of breast cancer and promoting opportunities for early screenings because early detection saves lives!

The Scan Van will be located at Senator Lanza’s District Office and at the Staten Island Mall. Please see below for specific dates.
