The Amy foundation was established to enable women without health insurance to obtain free screening mammograms, and to work with individuals in the medical field to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages. Statistics show that the earlier a tumor is diagnosed the better the survival rate.
Over the past seven years, The Amy Foundation has donated more than $300,000 to our medical partners: Saint Peter’s University Hospital in New Brunswick, Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, and University Medical Center at Princeton. In turn, these medical facilities have provided several thousand free mammograms for women in need. A few of those mammograms have resulted in the detection of breast cancer in its earliest stages. Your support of the Amy foundation may have saved the lives of women who received this diagnosis.
Being told that you have breast cancer is surely terrifying news. But knowing that the disease has been discovered when it is most easily treated provides the hope for women and their families.
Most doctors feel that more lives can be saved by taking advantage of early detection tests. Yet uninsured and under- insured women lack the resources needed to get tested. The Amy Foundation remains committed to making the early detection of breast cancer accessible to all women. Please be a part of this effort today.
