The Washington Breast Cancer Foundation Board of Directors remains committed to providing free mammograms to medically uninsured and medically underinsured women in the Miss-Lou. 

This program was initiated in December 2011.  In 2020, a working relationship was forged with Merit Health Hospital Natchez.  A total of 47 women have received services and 7 of those women received follow-up diagnostic mammograms.  Six received follow-up breast ultrasounds.  These statistics do not reflect the approximately 200 women who received services up to 2020 through local health clinics in the Miss-Lou region. 

Most recently the Foundation received correspondence from the new CEO, Garett May, thanking board members for partnering with the hospital and making a difference in the community.
