McLeod receives grant from Susan G. Komen

on Tuesday, 31 July 2018. Posted in Local News, FEATURES

Susan G. Komen South Carolina recently announced $180,065 in new grants for 2018. These awards help meet the most critical needs of the community, including projects that provide free and low-cost breast cancer screening, diagnostic and treatment support services to underinsured and uninsured women and men. These vital programs also support Susan G. Komen’s bold goal to reduce current breast cancer deaths by 50 percent in the U.S. by 2026.
A check presentation for a community grant to McLeod Health was held on Tuesday, July 24, in the McLeod Plaza Auditorium, 800 E. Cheves Street.

McLeod received funding for Making An Impact 2018-2019 which provides mammogram scholarships to women in Marion, Darlington, Florence, and Williamsburg Counties who cannot afford mammograms and do not qualify for the Best Chance Network.

Many Making An Impact participants may also be eligible for treatment from the McLeod Cancer Clinic, the state’s only remaining free hospital-based cancer clinic, which provides cost-free cancer care to uninsured residents of the Pee Dee.
