HUNTINGTON, NY – The Dolan Family Health Center has been given a one-year, $25,000 grant from Pink Aid. The grant is to encourage women who do not have health insurance to get free mammograms, sonograms and breast biopsies.

The mammograms and other breast screenings will be performed at Huntington Hospital’s Women’s Center and at the Charles and Helen Reichert Imaging Center at Huntington.

“We are very grateful for this grant, which will help so many women to get the medical care that they need and it will also help their families,” said Kathy Giffuni, RN, Nurse Manager of the Dolan Family Health Center.

Pink Aid is a 501c3 group that provides grants to help women better survive breast cancer.

“The Dolan Family Health Center provides great services for the medically-underserved in the Huntington area,” said Ali Mitchell, a founding member of Pink Aid. “We are glad to be able to help more women get breast cancer screenings because being able to diagnose and treat cancer as soon as possible is critical to survival.”
