A Silver Lining Foundation (ASLF) has been awarded a $20,000.00 grant to support its Buy A Mom A Mammogram Program. This, the fourth consecutive grant from The PrivateBank will continue to support ASLF’s mission to ensure that socioeconomic status does not affect an individual’s ability to obtain information, timely cancer screening and diagnosis.
Dr. Sandy Goldberg launched ASLF in 2002 and the Buy A Mom A Mammogram program in mid 2006. So far, over 6,000 women have received information about and were given access to a cost free screening mammogram and diagnostic evaluation through the program. Of those women, 99 percent are uninsured. Generous grants and donations such as the one provided by The PrivateBank allow the Buy A Mom A Mammogram to proliferate. Affordable healthcare is a challenge as it continues to slip out of reach, and ASLF works actively to provide answers and solutions regarding access to mammography and diagnostic evaluation.
The PrivateBank’s mission is to provide clients a comprehensive suite of personal and commercial banking, treasury management, investment products, capital markets, private banking and wealth management. Services are always delivered in the same way: by building strong relationships with clients. The PrivateBank conveniently offers 34 offices, serving: greater Atlanta, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Des Moines, Detroit, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and St. Louis metropolitan areas.
