Councilman Joel Rivera and The Brain Tumor’s Foundation
“Bobby Murcer Mobile MRI Unit” Provides Free MRI Screenings
Bronx, New York – Council Member Joel Rivera and The Brain Tumor’s Foundation “Bobby Murcer Mobile MRI Unit” will provide free MRI scans for the community located outside of 1901 Southern Boulevard on May 25 and 26 from 9am to 5pm.
In recognition of May as Brain Tumor Awareness Month, the Councilman encourages the community to make use of the free MRI scanning as brain tumors can occur at any age. Each year, more than 700 men and 600 women in New York State are diagnosed with cancer of the brain and nervous system. More than 400 men and 300 women die from this disease each year in New York State.
“A non-invasive, radiation-free simple MRI brain scan can save your life. This screening is open to all residents in the community and I urge everyone to participate in this exercise as early detection is the road to prevention. Working with Bobby Murcer MRI Unit we are able to provide this service to Bronxites that may not have the financial means to do so otherwise,” stated Councilman Rivera.
