Climb on board the pink bus

The Pink Tour bus.

The issue of breast health will be highlighted during the Cloverdale Rodeo Friday and Saturday, when the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s Pink Tour bus makes an appearance.

The bus will be at the rodeo and fairgrounds Friday, May 20 from 4 p.m. to 11 p.m. and all day Saturday, from 10 a.m. top 11 p.m.

Visitors are welcome inside to tour the bus and read more about breast health in three languages – English, Punjabi and Chinese. The bus, a mammography and breast health education centre on wheels, is touring more than 50 B.C. communities.

Staff will guide visitors through displays and encourage women between the ages of 40 and 79 to book a free mammogram in their communities.

Women registering at the Pink Bus will be contacted by the Screening Mammography Program of B.C. to arrange a mammogram appointment.
