FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The Breast Center, A MANA Clinic is partnering with the Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks (BCFO) to help provide free screening mammograms to women throughout Northwest Arkansas.

BCFO will pay for mammogram screenings of uninsured or underinsured women with money donated by Brown Boys Roofing.

“We are thrilled to expand this free screening mammogram program in Arkansas,” said BCFO CEO Joe Daues. “We are grateful for the generosity of Brown Boys Roofing and feel lucky to have a partner like The Breast Center to enhance the emphasis on early detection of breast cancer because that’s key to surviving.”
