Year Round Mammography Services at SLMHC

Canadian Cancer Society donates to Mammography Fund

On April 1st, Martin Kabat, CEO, Canadian Cancer Society, Ontario Division presented the Foundation with a $100,000 cheque to assist with the purchase of a mammography unit for the Sioux Lookout Meno Ya Win Health Centre.

“The Foundation is very excited that the Canadian Cancer Society has made a most generous contribution to support the mammography program,” said Marnie Hoey, Foundation President, “So many will benefit, by expanding the breast cancer detection and treatment program at SLMHC.”

SLMHC looks forward to providing year round mammography services at the new Health Centre as early as this fall. Having the necessary equipment for both screening and assessment will result in timely diagnosis, treatment and improved prognosis for our patients.
