The Aspirus Health Foundation in Wausau was awarded a $105,942 grant from the Central Wisconsin Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure to help provide free breast cancer screenings and diagnostic services.
The money will be used by Aspirus Women's Health to help women and men who would otherwise not get treatment because of costs. Services that eligible patients can receive include:
- Breast exam
- Screening mammogram
- Diagnostic mammogram
- Genetic counseling
- Genetic testing
- Patient navigation
- Transportation assistance to appointments
Participants can receive these services at no cost to them between now and March 31, 2015 or until funds run out. The services will be available at all Aspirus hospitals and clinics in Langlade, Lincoln, Marathon, Portage, Taylor, Wood, and the western part of Shawano Counties.
