The Cancer Screening Project helps residents get access to free medical screenings for breast, colorectal and cervical cancers. A feature of this project is the Cancer Screening Van, a mobile digital mammography unit that travels throughout Central Louisiana. The screening van is a partnership between The Rapides Foundation, Cenla Medication Access Program (CMAP), and the Partners in Wellness Program at Feist-Weiller Cancer Center at LSU Health Shreveport.
Breast, cervical and colorectal cancer screening services are available on the mobile unit for qualified individuals.
- Women ages 40-64 - Pap test, pelvic exam, clinical breast exam, digital mammography
- Women ages 45-64 - all of above including colorectal cancer screening

The mobile unit will travel throughout Allen, Avoyelles, Catahoula, Grant, LaSalle, Natchitoches, Rapides, Vernon, and Winn parishes providing these services to individuals who meet the age requirement and have no medical insurance.
