Project Mammogram exists to decrease the incidence of late-stage breast cancer diagnosis through outreach, education, preventative diagnostic screenings, and other breast services. Project Mammogram serves women and men who lack the access and funds available to be properly screened for breast cancer. Saving the lives of many and giving peace of mind to many more.
Did you know?
Project Mammogram was founded in 2001 with an initial donation from the Kingwood Women’s Club. Joyce White, a nurse, and pioneer of Project Mammogram wanted to ensure that women with no resources who came to her needing help could receive a lifesaving screening regardless of their lack of insurance, having insurance with a high deductible or with income that is not low enough to qualify for Medicaid.
This ongoing program of the Foundation has served over 10,000 residents since inception, providing an average of 500-600 procedures per year with an average of 6-12 cancers detected per year.
According to the American Cancer Society, when breast cancer is detected early and is in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is 98%. Early detection includes doing monthly breast self-exams and scheduling regular clinical breast exams and mammograms. Project Mammogram provides these lifesaving screenings to those who might otherwise not have access, therefore decreasing late-stage breast cancer diagnoses.
provides the following life saving services free to the patient: Screening and Diagnostic Mammograms, Ultrasounds and other Breast Services.
