Founded in 2002 by Dr. Sandy Goldberg, A Silver Lining Foundation (ASLF) has evolved from a single outreach program connecting those in need with breast health resources and information to a funder of life-saving breast health testing. Through its Buy A Mom A Mammogram® program (BAMAM), ASLF funds cost-free breast health testing for those who are uninsured, underinsured and/or ineligible for other breast health testing programs. We don’t exclude based on age, residency, or socioeconomics. Since BAMAM was established in 2006, nearly 28,000 women have received cost-free screening mammograms and diagnostic testing, including diagnostic mammogram, breast ultrasound, MRI and biopsy. ASLF works with 15 partner hospitals throughout Chicagoland, Rockford, Elgin, Evanston and Des Plaines. Should there be a diagnosis of breast cancer, our partner hospitals ensure that anyone coming through ASLF’s program will receive cost-free treatment via public programs or the hospital’s charity care program.
