Humboldt Community Breast Health Project
The Humboldt Community Breast Health Project was born from the passion, commitment, and dedication to the idea that every woman diagnosed with breast cancer in Humboldt County should find support and up-to-date information locally, and that the source of this support and information should be provided by other women who have experienced the journey of breast cancer.
"We want women to get the care they need, when they need it! Many times women put off going to the doctor for routine women’s health exams or a mammogram because of the cost. Thanks to this grant from the National Breast Cancer Foundation, there is a nurse navigator that women can trust to help make sure they can get the care they need. The nurse navigator works closely with Mad River Community Hospital to provide free mammograms for women who are uninsured or underinsured over age 40. These resources, collectively, are vitally important to improve the well-being of low-income, underserved women in our rural community. 'The sum of the parts is equal to more than the sum of the total.'"
