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.
