PROJECT ACCESS

Success Story Continued

Donna found a lump and it scared her.  Many members of her family had breast cancer scares and now she felt like it was her turn.  Donna is a 46 year old single mom working whatever hours she could at her part-time job. 

Donna was uninsured.  She called 2-1-1.

Soon Donna was enrolled in Project Access (afterwards she said she was treated with dignity during the enrolment process.)  Very quickly she was connected with a physician who volunteered her time and services for the program.  She was long-overdue for diagnostic tests.  Donna was grateful for finally being able to speak confidentially with a doctor to discuss her risk.  Through Project Access, she was able to obtain her first mammogram in four years.

Her fears were comforted.
