Komen Grantee Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation
Administrator of Komen’s Southeast Wisconsin Breast Health Assistance Fund
Since April 1, 2010, the Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation has administered the Komen granted Southeast Wisconsin Breast Health Assistance Fund. This fund provides free breast health screenings to individuals residing in Jefferson, Kenosha, Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Racine, Walworth, Washington and Waukesha counties, with an annual gross income of less than 400% of the Federal Poverty Level.
The purpose of the Fund is to break down barriers to breast health screening and treatment for under and uninsured individuals of all ages and gender. Approved applicants are able to access care at any of 36 Health Care facilities in the service area.
The Southeast Wisconsin Breast Health Assistance Fund provides assistance with screening/diagnostic services including clinical breast exams, mammograms, diagnostic mammograms, ultrasounds ductograms, galactograms, and biopsies. For individuals going through Breast Cancer treatment, the Fund can also assist with treatment related co-pays, deductibles, transportation/childcare and some medications.
“The fund was a blessing to my life, because I was able to get this exam that I been holding off for years, because I don’t have any insurance. Now I have peace of mind knowing that my breasts are fine.”
“Just wanted to send a “Thank you” to you and the Wisconsin Women’s Health Foundation. Having no insurance to cover a mammogram was a huge worry for me. Having breast cancer fun in my family was an even larger worry for me. Not only did the foundation help me with the costs of a mammogram, but it gave me something more valuable – peace of mind.”
