The Center can currently see a maximum of 20 patients each day, but the new machine will allow them to screen up to 35 women on a daily basis. The upgrade will ensure the CBCC has the latest in mammography technology.

"We're all walking for different reasons," says Weiner. "There's a great sense of family and camaraderie."
