Hospital’s early detection program receives $15,000 grant
[May 05 2011] -
The Hospital of Central Connecticut's early detection program for breast and cervical cancer has been awarded a $15,000 grant from the Charlotte Johnson Hollfelder Foundation. This grant, the foundation's 11th for this program, targets a population of uninsured or underinsured women in Greater New Britain who are in need of a routine mammogram and
are at least 35 years old but are uninsured or have a $1,000 or more deductible and would otherwise waive breast cancer screenings; or
whose insurance will only cover a mammogram every other year.
Charlotte Johnson Hollfelder Foundation grant funding has paid for nearly 300 mammograms at the hospital since January 2010. This current grant marks $100,000 directed to the early detection program at The Hospital of Central Connecticut since the foundation began providing grants to the program in 1997. The foundation was established by Fred Hollfelder in honor of his late wife. For more program information, please call Laura Karas at 860-224-5900 X6321.
