The Sandy Area Chamber of Commerce created the Breast Cancer Prevention Program in 2011. This program helps uninsured women receive free mammograms. The program is co-sponsored by St. Mark’s Hospital, Lone Peak Imaging Center, and Utah JAZZ sportscaster Craig Bolerjack. Ginger Johnson, founder of Happy Chemo, recently donated $5,000 to the foundation!
How the Program Works
Through the free mammograms provided by St. Mark’s Hospital and Lone Peak Imaging Center women are able to receive a free mammogram screening. The Chamber then provides the financial costs, through its 501(c)(3) foundation, for a follow up diagnostic for those women whose mammogram tests positive. If breast cancer is confirmed in the diagnostic the Chamber and its co-sponsors help these women get access to additional services and funding for the additional care required.
