Last year, Union Health diagnosed 149 women in our community with breast cancer. How were their cancers found? A mammogram screening at one of Union Health’s three Clara Fairbanks for Women locations.

The fact is one in eight women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime, and all of the research proves that early detection is critical to improve survival rates.

Union Health Foundation continually offers financial assistance to women that may not have insurance coverage for mammogram screenings and diagnostic procedures. Thanks to donations, 10 patients received assistance last year, and our work does not end there!

Donations have not only ensured women are able to afford essential screening services, but they have also funded the purchase of 3D mammogram equipment, genetic testing and counseling, and advanced training for our breast cancer clinical team.

Signs are available for curbside pickup Monday-Thursday from 9 AM to 3 PM, at the Union Hospital East entrance. Upon arrival, call our office at 812-238-7534. Local delivery on selected dates is also available upon request.
