“If it wasn’t for the CMC Foundation I would not be here today. I found a lump in my breast and was referred to CMC to get a mammogram but almost didn’t call because I knew I couldn’t afford it. Someone told me about the Mammography Initiative and it literally saved my life. In October it will be two years that I will be cancer free!”
– Joanne Pittman, Conway, SC
The Conway Medical Center Mammography Initiative was developed to assist women in the Conway Medical Center service area who cannot financially obtain necessary health screenings such as mammograms and other clinical breast examinations.
It is the goal of Conway Medical Center to improve women’s health by offering the opportunity to detect early signs of breast cancer or other diseases. There is additional funding available to women who need further procedures such as biopsies and ultrasounds. Since the program was introduced in October of 2005, CMC Foundation has paid over $700,000 in services.
