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 and Utah JAZZ sportscaster Craig Bolerjack. Recently, Ginger Johnson, founder of Happy Chemo, donated $5,000 to the foundation!
How the Program Works
The free mammograms provided by St. Mark’s Hospital allow women to get 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, the Chamber, and its co-sponsors, help these women get access to additional services and funding for the care required.
Qualifications for the program:
Sponsors and Grants
Since the program’s inception in 2011, the Breast Cancer Prevention Program has received grants from Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club, and Coldwell Banker.
The program has also received anonymous donations from other corporations and individuals throughout the area.
