Vons, MLH breast cancer team
In support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Vons and the Healthcare Trust of Mammoth Lakes are teaming up to ensure that all donations through Vons checkstands stay local during the month of October. All donations will help underprivileged women of Mono County pay for mammograms. Show your support while you shop and give back to your community through the end of October.
Yuri Parisky, M.D., Medical Imaging Director at Mammoth Hospital is very grateful to Vons and Safeway for allowing all funds raised to stay local. “Although many women in Mono County can’t afford preventative screenings, it is crucial to detect breast cancer in its early stages to ensure that it can be treated effectively,” Parisky points out.
