Success Story Continued
Donna found a lump and it scared her. Many members of her family had breast cancer scares and now she felt like it was her turn. Donna is a 46 year old single mom working whatever hours she could at her part-time job.
Donna was uninsured. She called 2-1-1.
Soon Donna was enrolled in Project Access (afterwards she said she was treated with dignity during the enrolment process.) Very quickly she was connected with a physician who volunteered her time and services for the program. She was long-overdue for diagnostic tests. Donna was grateful for finally being able to speak confidentially with a doctor to discuss her risk. Through Project Access, she was able to obtain her first mammogram in four years.
Her fears were comforted.
