Hope 4 You and Mercy Health Foundation Joplin fighting breast cancer together



Joplin, Mo: Mercy Health Foundation Joplin will be presented with a check from Hope 4 You Breast Cancer Foundation on Wednesday, April 30, 2014 at 11:00am in the Mercy Hospital lobby.

Hope 4 You funds are used through Mercy Health Foundation to provide free and low-cost mammograms to uninsured and under-insured women in our area. “Hope 4 You is helping provide money for individuals to get mammogram screenings when they normally couldn’t afford it. If we get screening mammograms we are finding breast cancer at an earlier stage, which helps with positive outcomes,” said Dr. W.C. Dandridge, medical director, Mercy Breast Center.

“Hope 4 You is so happy to be able to help our local hospitals, by helping individuals get mammograms when they otherwise couldn’t afford it,” said Sharon Clark, president, Hope 4 You Breast Cancer Foundation. “It thrills us to be able to give this donation because we know Mercy will provide screenings for women in our area that need the assistance.”-

The community is invited to attend the check presentation and enjoy refreshments celebrating the gifts Hope 4 You provides for our patients and community.
