ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
People who bought license plates to raise awareness of breast cancer are helping save the lives of women in South Georgia.
The Cancer Coalition of South Georgia got $50,000 grant from the Breast Cancer license plate fund.
It will allow clinics in Ashburn and Tifton to reach out to uninsured and low income women between the ages of 40 to 64 to make sure they get mammograms.
"We know that uninsured women are more likely, when they're diagnosed with breast cancer, to be diagnosed at a later stage. This means they don't have the same opportunities for successful treatment and cure. We want to make sure that we find cancers early and it's only by having mammograms on the regular basis as prescribed by your doctor that you can do that," said Cancer Coalition of South Georgia Vice President Denise Ballard.
To find out if you may qualify for this program or want more information, you can call The Cancer Coalition of South Georgia at (229) 312-1702.
