JOPLIN, MO.--- Freeman Health System's Helping Friends Mammogram Fund receives a generious donation from the Hope 4 You Breast Cancer Foundation. The $4,000 donation will go towards the mammogram fund. This will provide uninsured or underinsured patients with mammogram screenings. The donation was raised through several fundraisers by Hope 4 You.

"It's how we afford to do it. We through the foundation paid for 34 women to have screening mammograms last year through donations like this. If we didn't get these kind of donations, we wouldn't be able to do that," said Wendy Chrisenbery, Wes and Jan Houser Women's Pavilion.
