COVINGTON, Ga. - Piedmont Newton Hospital has been awarded a grant for $14,000 from It’s The Journey, Inc., producers of the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer.
It’s The Journey provides grants annually for Georgia programs that focus on breast cancer screening, early detection, genetic counseling and wellness.
Piedmont Newton will use grant funds to provide screening and diagnostic mammograms for individuals who would not otherwise be able to afford these services. Patients who present with an abnormal mammogram will be eligible for a breast ultrasound and if necessary, a biopsy to determine the presence of cancer.
It’s The Journey, Inc. produces the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer, an annual walk that raises funds for breast health and breast cancer programs in Georgia. The 2019 2-Day walk raised more than $1.1 million, and all of the money raised here, stays in Georgia.
