St Rose Receives $20,000 From Breast Cancer Foundation
The National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.® recently granted $20,000 to St. Rose Dominican's R.E.D. Rose (Responsible Early Detection) program to pay for mammograms and ultrasounds for under- and uninsured women.
“Southern Nevada ranks among the highest in the nation for under- and uninsured individuals,” said Rod Davis, senior vice president of Dignity Health Nevada. “The National Breast Cancer Foundation’s donation will be instrumental in helping us provide much-needed clinical services for this target population. On behalf of those we will be able to support, we express our sincere gratitude.”
The St. Rose Dominican R.E.D. Rose program provides free clinical breast exams, mammograms, ultrasounds, surgical consultations and biopsies to women and men 49 and younger who lack adequate health care coverage or the financial means to obtain them.
