Free mammograms at Barton

Barton has received a $21,450 grant from Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which should provide free mammograms to local women (and men) for about seven months.
In the 2007-08 grant cycle, Barton diagnosed six women with breast cancer through the Komen funds. In the 2008-20 grant cycle, four women we diagnosed with breast cancer using the Komen funds. All 10 have been treated for breast cancer and are on the road to recovery.
The Komen mammograms are coordinated through Barton’s Community Clinic’s referral coordinator, Pamela Stoddart. Anyone in need of a mammogram who cannot afford one should call Stoddart at (530) 543-5632.
