The Fairfield Medical Center Foundation was awarded a $63,663 grant from the Columbus affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure that will be used by Fairfield Medical Center to provide screenings and mammograms for uninsured women in Fairfield, Hocking and Perry counties.
“We feel extremely honored to be chosen as a grant recipient again this year,” said Joyce Cox, M.B.A., M.S.N., C.N.P., C.R.N.F.A., O.C.N., oncology nurse navigator at FMC. “This grant gives us the opportunity to provide a much-needed screening and awareness program for women who otherwise would not be able to afford it.”
Funding from last year’s Komen grant allowed FMC to provide screenings and mammograms to 125 women in 2012-13 through the No Excuses project.
“The financial support from our organization serves as a safety net for women in our service area, allowing the funded organization to deliver services to women who would not be able to afford them,” said Julie McMahon, director of mission at Komen Columbus. “At a time when state and federal support for the uninsured and underinsured is being cut and demand for free or low-cost breast cancer support is high, we are proud to be a resource that makes an impact and saves lives.”
