MCHC receives funding from Susan G. Komen Foundation

Mariposa Community Health Center was awarded $34,426 from the Susan G. Komen Foundation to support Mariposa’s Juntos Contra el Cancer Program (Together Against Cancer).

Juntos Contra el Cancer has provided breast health promotion, breast health services, mammography, diagnostic testing and support services for breast cancer survivors targeting medically under-served women since its inception in 1994. It was originally funded through the National Cancer Institute.

With this new funding from Komen, Mariposa will support treatment costs for uninsured women who have a breast cancer diagnosis and do not qualify for treatment through the Well Woman Health Check Program.
