Research shows that early detection saves lives but not all women can afford it. We need YOU to help us Give the Gift of Time by helping us achieve our goal of raising $20,000. Your gift means the Norma Pfriem Breast Center can financially assist women who otherwise could not afford screening and diagnostic testing, such as Mammograms, Ultrasounds, and Ultrasound Guided Biopsies that could potentially save their lives. Early diagnosis is sometimes the difference between life and death. Due to a lack of insurance or high deductibles many women are forced to put off testing. Your gift will be used to financially assist medically uninsured/underinsured women. Last year the Norma Pfriem Breast Center helped over 1700 women.
No woman should have to choose between putting food on her table and bearing the cost of medical care.
The Norma Pfriem Breast Center also helps women in treatment who can’t afford the support services so important to healing and recovery. These are services not covered by insurance: counseling, navigation, wigs, and more. Patients at the Norma Pfriem Breast Center who can’t afford these services have options. Our Angel Fund pays for the extras that insurance doesn’t cover. Your gift to our Angel Fund will help make a woman’s breast cancer journey as easy as possible, so she can concentrate on getting well.
Give us a moment of your time and participate in Give the Gift of Time. Simply click on our link to our Crowdrise page, and make a donation. Any amount makes a difference and helps us achieve our goal of financially assisting women who otherwise could not afford services for screening, diagnosis and treatment.
