Once a patient is diagnosed with a breast issue requiring further care and treatment, we offer our patients the services of our Breast Health Nurse Navigator. Our navigator serves as a woman’s breast health patient advocate, supporting and guiding her, as well as her family, on their journey through the health care system. Our navigator program provides patients with educational, emotional and social support. The program also provides information regarding community and support resources as appropriate.


Seed money for the Mammo Money Program was provided by the Venice Firefighters Benevolent Fund through their fundraising efforts selling t-shirts for breast cancer awareness. The project was spearheaded by Frank Giddens, a Venice firefighter in October 2011. The firefighters generously donated all of the proceeds from their breast cancer awareness fundraising project to the Hospital Volunteers of Venice at Venice Regional Medical Center. The donation started our Mammo Money program, which provides mammograms for women in the Venice community who cannot afford them and who would otherwise not get a yearly mammogram. The mammograms are provided by our outstanding mammogram technologists. Click here for more information on the Mammo Money Program.
