    To locate a FDA certified, accredited mammography facility in your area, call the National Cancer Institute at 1-800-4-CANCER. If you do not have health insurance, you have a number of options:

    1. Call your local chapter of the American Cancer Society (number in your phone book) or the national toll-free number, 1-800-ACS-2345. The ACS will be able to tell you about any low-cost or free mammography programs offering screening to women unable to pay for it themselves.

    2. Call your State Department of Health (number in your phone book). Every state now has a Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program funded by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This program offers screening to qualifying women unable to pay for it themselves.

    3. Call the YWCA's ENCOREplus Program for access to low-cost or free mammograms. To find which YWCA facilities offer this service and if you are eligible, call 1-800-95EPLUS or your local YWCA.

    4. Call the National Cancer Institute at 1-800-4-CANCER for the names of FDA-certified, accredited mammography facilities in your area. If you explain your financial situation, some mammography facilities are willing to work out a lower fee or payment schedule that will make the test more affordable. Ask the facility if they are willing to discuss these options with you.

    October of each year is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and many mammography facilities offer special fees and extended hours during this month. If you are unable to schedule a mammogram another time of year, you may wish to call in September to reserve an appointment.

    This is only an article, but "The Rose" center appears to be sponsoring free and reduced cost mammograms to women without insurance. You will have to make an appointment, and this date is coming up, so I'd act now.

    Hopefully this helps :D

    Also, here's a link to the same clinic. You may have to call around, as I can't find anything that openly advertises free mammograms.

    Best of luck :D

    If you love her. And she has a lump. You would insist on her going, even if you had to take her. To the place that could get her in the soonest. That is nothing to play with. Money is just that, money. If she dies. She wont be comming back.
