Buddy Check 25: Does your insurer cover diagnostic mammograms?

PEORIA, Ill. -- When Melissa Maubach discovered a lump in her breast, she feared the worst.

Only 35 at the time, she had a family history of breast cancer.

But Maubach could not afford the out-of-pocket expense for further tests to determine if that lump was indeed cancer.

Unity Point Health Methodist paid for her mammogram and sonogram with grant funding from Susan G. Komen.

The lump turned out to be benign.

Maubach and Curves Peoria will host the Methodist mammography van and Well Mobile on November 11.

This weekend, Curves is hosting the Warrior Woman Workout in Bradley Park to benefit breast cancer charities.
