Breast cancer detection truck in the middle of nowhere, Ketchikan Alaska

The photo is showing a pink truck equipped with a mammogram detection device in Ketchikan Alaska. As part of a breast cancer awareness campaign every woman who passed by had the opportunity to participate and get a mammogram screening free of charge. I expected many things when I planned my trip to the wilderness of Alaska, but finding this exceptional service for the cure right in the middle of nowhere between jumping salmon and wooden totem poles really rendered me speechless.
