CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - Levine Cancer Institute and Charlotte Radiology work together to provide free mammogram screenings for uninsured and underinsured women across the Carolinas.

40 women were able to step onto the pink bus for screenings in the WBTV parking lot on Friday.

WBTV’s Caroline Hicks shared the stories of breast cancer survivors and Project Pink team members throughout the day on WBTV News.
