MMSC Foundation: Foundation Funded Programs
The MMSC Foundation has accepted the challenge to make our community a safer and healthier place to live. Programs have been developed by the Foundation to help the hospital identify and respond to the health care needs of the communities we serve.
Breast Cancer Detection
PREVENT is an early breast cancer detection program that was established in partnership with the Marshall County Chapter of the American Cancer Society. Most medical experts agree that successful treatment of breast cancer is often linked to early diagnosis. Mammography screening plays a central part in early detection. The MMSC Foundation has made a commitment that every woman, regardless of her ability to pay, will be able to have a mammography screening in accordance with American Cancer Society Guidelines.
