Women in Starke or La Porte Counties who do not have the resources to pay for screening and diagnostic mammograms may apply for a voucher for these services.

Vouchers are available for low-income, uninsured or underinsured women age 40 and older and women of any age who are at-risk for breast cancer. Women should contact their physician’s office to see if they meet the qualifications for a voucher.

Vouchers are made available thanks to grant funding through the Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust. $18,000 in grant money was secured for this year to help in this effort.

Contact the Healthcare Foundation of La Porte for more information at (219) 326-2471.
