The Buffalo Sabres Alumni Association announced a partnership with First Niagara, the Erie County Medical Center, and WNY Breast Health to roll out the Breast Cancer Prevention and Education Bus. The organizations combined to purchase a $750,000 bus that will serve the Western New York Region in providing better resources to detect breast cancer among women. The bus represents the first time a professional sports team has been involved in a project of this nature.
The bus, which will have two mammography units on it, will be staffed with breast health professionals, and will have ample space for private changing areas and confidential discussions. The bus will travel to locations throughout the eight counties of WNY in urban and rural communities where mammography services are limited or non-existent.
