Baptist Health Care Foundation Raises Nearly $22,000 to Support its Mammogram Fund

PENSACOLA, Fla. (Nov. 16, 2021) – Baptist Health Care Foundation continues to work with community partners and donors, including our Local Honda Dealer and Bank of America, to help raise funds and awareness about the Foundation’s Mammogram Fund. Throughout the month of October, the Foundation raised $21,800 to provide mammograms to women who may not be able to afford the life-saving screening.

“The mammogram fund remains vitally important as Baptist continues to serve the needs of its patients year-round,” said KC Gartman, chief development officer of Baptist Health Care. “We are extremely grateful to our supporters of this program.”

Since the start of this program, screenings have been provided to 2,388 women. As a result of these screenings, 562 women required additional testing, 73 required biopsies and 25 were diagnosed with breast cancer.

The Foundation would like to thank presenting partner our Local Honda Dealers and community partners Bank of America, Cox, Jewelers Trade Shop, Oyster Bay Boutique Hotel, Magic 106.1 and Soft Rock 94.1, and The Grand Marlin Pensacola Beach, as well as all donors for supporting this initiative.
