KQMV-FM in Bellevue, Wash., is a year-round supporter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Involved in several events to raise breast cancer awareness each year, the station is especially proud of organizing a mobile mammogram service to provide free screenings to underserved women. The mammogram vehicle, which tours for 10 days during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, covers the entire listening area, from Everett to Tacoma. Dates and locations for the mobile mammogram program are broadcast well in advance, and live broadcasts are aired from each of the mobile mammogram stops. Women are asked to visit the station Web site for more information and to make an appointment in advance. Every appointment available is usually booked, and often there is a waiting list.
