La Porte, IN – Since 2009, the Michigan City Women’s Bowling Association (MCWBA) has helped raise funds to support the La Porte Hospital Foundation’s Breast Cancer Prevention Fund. The MCWBA held its 15th annual Bowl For The Cure bowl-a-thon on Saturday, Feb. 27, at Lakeshore Lanes. There were 108 women, men, teens and children in attendance. The Foundation is grateful to MCWBA for their continued support, including a gift of $5,200 received this year.

Funds received through The Foundation Breast Cancer Prevention Fund are used to support The Foundation Breast Cancer Project possible. The Foundation’s Breast Cancer Project is an established comprehensive effort in our service area which encourages and educates adult women in breast health & early detection practices. This effort provides screening and diagnostic mammography services available to low-income, uninsured and underinsured women who meet ACS High Risk criteria, as well as those forty years of age and older.

Community members interested in learning more about their eligibility should discuss with their personal physician. Mammography free vouchers can be requested by the physician’s office for those community members meeting program requirements by contacting The Foundation at 219.326.2471 or contact@laportehospitalfoundation.org.
