Beverly Hospital Receives Grant from Susan G. Komen
Beverly Hospital Receives Grant from Susan G. Komen

The Los Angeles County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen has awarded a grant to Beverly Hospital in Montebello to support a no-cost breast cancer diagnosis program at the hospital’s Women’s Pavilion and Breast Center.

The $30,000 grant will serve to cover the costs for a full range of diagnostic services for the early detection of breast cancer for more than 100 symptomatic uninsured or underinsured women and men, 40 years of age or under.  Women and men who meet the criteria for the breast cancer screenings can receive digital mammography,  ultrasound and core needle biopsy as well as radiology and pathology consultations from hospital physicians without cost.

“The Komen grant is generous gift to the women and men in our communities,” said Alice Cheng, President and Chief Executive Officer of Beverly Hospital, a non-profit independent hospital that has served residents of Montebello and surrounding communities for more than 60 years.  “With nearly one in five women in Los Angeles County having incomes below the federal poverty line and another almost quarter of them uninsured, this is an important community benefit program to improve access to critical breast cancer screening,” she added.

Experts say women and men under age 40 who have abnormal mammograms need access to further clinical follow up care.  Breast cancer is the second leading cause of pre-mature death for women in Los Angeles County.

“This grant will allow us to care for younger women and men who would otherwise go without getting screened for breast cancer,” stressed Dr. David Brousseau, a diagnostic radiologist on staff at Beverly Hospital and an advocate for greater screening programs for the at-risk population.   Moreover, it will allow us to perform all of the necessary procedures at no cost to patients who meet the eligibility criteria as well as engage in vigorous after care with our patient navigators who will ensure proper follow up.”

Dr. Brousseau said that early detection of breast cancer is critical for younger population.  “Early detection improves a person’s treatment options and improves their chance of long-term survival if she/he is diagnosed with breast cancer.  This no-cost program may mean the difference between life and death for many at-risk.”

Susan G. Komen is the world’s largest breast cancer organization and the Los Angeles County Affiliate is one of more than 120 on the front lines dedicated to ending breast cancer in their communities.  Komen Affiliates fund innovative programs that help women and men overcome the cultural, social, educational and financial barriers to accessing breast health care.
