The Good News Clinics in Gainesville was awarded a grant of $19,000 by It’s The Journey Inc., which produces the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer.
The grant will fund free screening mammograms, diagnostic mammograms and ultrasounds to uninsured residents of Hall County.
It is one of 28 grants totaling $820,000 recently awarded by It’s The Journey to breast health programs in Georgia.
“We are thrilled to continue to support Good News Clinics to increase our impact in Hall County,” said Kimberly Goff, executive director of It’s The Journey Inc. “One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, and the Good News Clinics, in partnership with It’s The Journey, is taking steps to detect and treat breast cancer among underserved populations in our state.”
Mary Baxter of Good News Clinics said: “We are grateful for our partnership with It’s The Journey to bring necessary diagnostic testing to our patients, many of whom would not otherwise be able to afford these vital breast health services.”
