About Gifts of Hope
Gifts of Hope
3D Mammography
Gifts of Hope is a fund created to provide free mammograms and diagnostic services to those who need financial assistance to pay for a clinic visit, testing, co-pays, and diagnostic analysis of those tests to determine next steps, as well as Pap tests and/or pelvic exams. Funds are meant for people who have no insurance; have a health insurance policy that does not pay for these services; and those who cannot pay deductible or co-insurance amounts. Talk to your VGH provider if you want to use Gifts of Hope funds and it will be arranged. No Application is necessary.
The Benton County Survivor Group has become instrumental over the past several years in raising funds through their various activities, primarily the Party in Pink 5k race held in June. Through dedicated effort and strong leadership, they have become a real fundraising force in the fight against breast cancer. They got their start when the girls basketball coaches and team, during the 2009-2010 season, decided to honor breast cancer survivors and raise funds for a Coaches against Cancer game. The money was donated to the Foundation and the momentum for the Gifts of Hope has grown from there.  If you would like to contribute to this fund, you may donate online.
3D mammography is now available at Virginia Gay Hospital. Donations to our 2017 Tree of Lights campaign helped pay for a portion of this new, more accurate breast cancer detection technology and the Gifts of Hope fund will also pay the difference between standard 2D mammography and 3D screening if the patient’s insurance does not cover the cost of the 3D test.
