(SEYMOUR) - Schneck Medical Center has received a grant from the Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust to provide 40 free screenings mammograms to low and middle income women in the communities it serves.

A mammogram is one of the best tools for the early detection of breast cancer and life-saving early detection.

To qualify for the screening mammogram, women must be 40 years of age or older and need a mammogram but unable to afford one.

"This grant provides a much-needed service in our region. Many women do not have sufficient insurance coverage, or no coverage for screening mammograms," said Rita Baker, Director of Diagnostic Imaging at Schneck. "We know early detection of breast cancer is key, and our Women's Diagnostic Imaging program can help save the lives of women who otherwise would not be able to have a mammogram."

If you or someone you know needs a screening mammogram and does not have insurance or is under-insured, please contact Schneck Patient Financial Services at 812-522-0413.
