Mammo Money

Mammo Money Program
Making mammograms affordable and saving lives!

Every woman 40 and over needs to have an annual mammogram. Putting it off can cost you a lot more than money, but what do you do if you cannot afford one? That is where Mammo Money can help. The Hospital Volunteers of Venice at Venice Regional Medical Center provide mammogram funding to qualified applicants.  Started by the Venice Firefighters Benevolent Fund, Mammo Money is an assistance program that helps cover mammogram screening costs for women who cannot afford breast cancer exams.

Now women in the Venice community who cannot otherwise afford an annual mammogram can apply for assistance through our Mammo Money program. Available through Venice Regional Medical Center’s Women’s Breast Institute, these breast cancer screenings are performed by our outstanding mammogram technologists. So, if you are 40 or older, or have been advised by a doctor to have an annual mammogram and cannot afford one, click here to apply.

The History of Mammo Money

In October 2011, Frank Giddens, a Venice firefighter, began raising funds to support breast cancer awareness. Selling t-shirts, Frank and the Venice firefighters collected funds for breast cancer awareness then generously donated all of the proceeds to the Hospital Volunteers of Venice at Venice Regional Medical Center. These funds were the seed money that helped launch the “Mammo Money” assistance program.
