We’re always trying to work with local organizations to raise funds and awareness for worthy causes. This October, we’ve partnered with a very special local non-profit organization to help raise funds that will enable them to carry out their mission. Michelle-O-Gram is a local non-profit company that works with surrounding radiology centers like Advanced Imaging to help women who don’t have the necessary funding or insurance to afford mammography testing be able to get tested. The charity was created in memory of Michelle Blauser Standridge, a member of the local community who died from breast cancer. During her fight with the disease, Michelle dedicated her efforts towards raising awareness in the surrounding community and encouraging women of all ethnicities and ages to get mammograms.
Since Michelle’s death, Michelle-O-Gram has been raising funds, collecting donations, and negotiating prices with local imaging centers in order to provide all women the opportunity to receive a mammogram, regardless of whether or not they can afford it.
At Advanced Imaging, we firmly believe that economic standing shouldn’t stand in the way of someone’s ability to be tested for a life-threatening disease. Because of this, our Villages office is hosting two events during the month of October, with 100% of the proceeds going to Michelle-O-Gram to aid in their mission. The two events are listed on the flyer below, along with the specific dates, times, and locations.
We’re so excited to be able to work with such a wonderful organization like Michelle-O-Gram, and encourage everybody to come out and show their support for this great cause! For more information about who they are and what they do, you can visit their website.
