St. Mary’s Foundation will sponser The Power of Hope to provide breast cancer education, digital mammogram screenings and diagnosis to women in four southwestern Indiana counties, which have a total or partial designation as medically underserved.  Five mass mammogram screenings will be held at times and locations easily accessible to reach target populations of elderly, low income, rural, uninsured/underinsured and minorities.  A Breast Health Liaison will conduct breast cancer screenings and education.  Women will receive digital screening mammograms, education in breast self-exams and, if needed, a referral for additional diagnostic services.  This is the seventh consecutive year the Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust has funded this program.

County/ties Served: Gibson, Pike, Posey and Spencer
