NRMC Foundation Receives Mammogram Funds
This month, Nevada Regional Medical Center (NRMC) Foundation was the recipient of a $1,000 donation from H.O.P.E. 4-You Breast Cancer Foundation in Joplin, Mo. NRMC is one of several area hospitals that the H.O.P.E. 4-You Foundation has gifted funds to help provide mammogram screenings to uninsured and under-insured women.
Each October in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, NRMC hosts a Ladies Night offering free mammograms to qualifying individuals. This program has been made possible by annual donations from the H.O.P.E. 4-You Foundation. Awareness of the free screening program has also led to contributions from other donors in the past year.
“We are honored to have this continued support from the H.O.P.E. 4-You Breast Cancer Foundation,” says Natalie Eberhard, Foundation Manager at NRMC. “They have allowed us to help dozens of women get the care they would not otherwise be able to afford. And I’m certain that has saved lives.”
