If you are a resident of Gary, Indiana, you can receive a FREE life saving screening mammogram courtesy of the Legacy Foundation and U S Steel/Knight Grant. The program is being done in partnership with Methodist Hospitals and Pink Ribbon Society. The offer expires September 30th this year.
The funds that have been received are to be used exclusively to support the women of Gary who are in need of a screening mammograms. All you have to do is call Methodist Hospitals Central Scheduling at 219-981-5440.
Currently, with funds from this grant, 28 women from Gary will be able to receive a 3D Screening Mammogram at the Breast Care Center at Methodist Hospitals – Northlake and/or Southlake. Since the offer is limited, we encourage the ladies to schedule the mammogram as soon as you can.
They will be financially screened along with confirming their residency in the city of Gary, which is one of the criteria to apply.
Expenses for women who may need further work-ups following the screening mammogram will be covered by the Methodist No Women Left Behind program.
Fliers are being distributed throughout the community as well as on the Pink Ribbon Society and Methodist Hospitals social media pages and with a Methofax, which will go out to over 1,000 physician offices describing the program.
