THE FOUNDATION'S IMPACT
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.
