3-D Tomosynthesis Mammography Equipment – Community Goal $200,000
We are pleased the 2016 Blue Jeans & Boots Gala will support the purchase of a 3-D Tomosynthesis Mammography Unit for the EvergreenHealth Monroe’s Breast Center. This will be the first important step towards providing an integrated breast health program for Monroe offering the technology to detect breast cancer at its earliest stages.
In 2015 we became affiliated with EvergreenHealth Kirkland who was the one of first medical centers to offer this technology in Washington and the Mobile Mammography Coach was the first mobile unit west of the Mississippi. We are expanding their well respected breast center program to the Monroe community who deserves this partnership and the best technology available in a permanent location for the resident of east Snohomish County.
