Free Mammograms: ‘Yes, Mamm!’
If the walls of our KentuckyOne Health mammography locations could talk, they would tell stories of fear and relief, heartbreak and courage, faith and healing.
Stories told from grandmothers, mothers, wives, sisters, aunts, daughters, neighbors, colleagues and friends.
“Yes, Mamm!” began as a need the Foundation identified three years ago. Underserved men and women were foregoing mammography due to financial pressures. The Foundation put together a funding plan to connect donors, grants, and cancer related organizations collaborate and work together. In all over $60,000 was raised last year and as a result of the popularity of Yes, Mamm! funds will be exhausted before all the people that need our help can be served.
When you walk in the Susan G. Komen race, buy a pink Kentucky license plate, attend the Evening With The S*T*A*R*S gala, your donation helps provide resources that save lives right here at home. Over 570 Kentucky women will die of invasive breast cancer this year. Thanks to our pink partners and generous donors assistance is available for screenings regardless of ability to pay.
Dr. Kimberly Stigers, Foundation Board Member and Radiologist at the Saint Joseph Breast Center has personally witnessed the impact this funding has provided her patients. ‘Yes, Mamm!’ has helped us develop a seamless way we can help patients and families maneuver through the breast screening, diagnosis and treatment plan process. We are grateful and happy to serve all patients with the best care possible and this funding has and will continue to save many lives.”
Breast cancer is non-discriminating. It has hit close to home with many members of the KentuckyOne Health family personally affected.
Because of the ever changing needs there is a constant need to raise dollars privately and reinvest in our people and facilities.There are several programs and services that the Foundation proudly supports that build healthier communities and improve the qualities of lives for our patients and their families. Also known as Lexington’s “heart hospital”,Saint Joseph has pioneered many firsts in the health care community. Beyond cardiology, the hospital is also nationally recognized for treatment of orthopedics and stroke. These and several other programs meld to establish Saint Joseph as a nationally ranked healthcare facility. More than 50 Kentuckians die of cardiovascular disease each day making it the state’s leading cause of death. The Heart Institute is central Kentucky’s pioneering heart and vascular care center. The Institute is home to an innovative new cardiac catheterization lab, electrophysiology lab and the first fully accredited noninvasive services department. Our team of nationally renowned cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons perform the full spectrum of invasive, noninvasive and surgical procedures. In 2011, da Vinci robotic technology was added to cardiac surgical options. Many traditional heart bypass or valve replacement surgeries can now be accomplished through three small incisions rather than the traditional 10” incision through the breast bone. The result is less pain and faster recovery times for many of our patients.
