Community Health Center receives $54,990 grant from Komen Phoenix Affiliate

The Phoenix Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure has awarded a $54,990 grant to the Community Health Center to fund Breast Cancer Screening. "This grant gives us the opportunity to provide mammograms and other diagnostic tests to so many of our uninsured patients" said Frank Colella Family Nurse Practitioner. Beside screening mammograms, this grant also provides funding for diagnostic mammograms, ultrasounds and ultrasound guided needle breast biopsies for uninsured and low income patients of the Community Health Center. These services are available in Prescott, Prescott Valley and Cottonwood.

In April, the Komen Phoenix Affiliate gave more that $2.2 million to fund breast cancer screening, education, treatment and research. More than $1.7 million will fund 19 community grants throughout central and northern Arizona, while more that $540,000 will go toward national research efforts. Since its inception in 1993, the Komen Phoenix Affiliate has granted more than $20 million-making it the largest private grantor of breast cancer funds in Arizona.
