Since 2006, the Buy A Mom a Mammogram ® program has funded the entire spectrum of breast health testing for uninsured and underinsured women (and men) throughout Chicagoland. In the past two years, 5,065 women received 6,504 procedures cost-free, resulting in 59 life-saving diagnoses and peace of mind for thousands of others.
