Mammograms Annually A Must

18th Annual M.A.A.M. Luncheon

Friday, October 9, 2020
CANCELED, but donations appreciated!

To help our community stay healthy during the coronavirus pandemic, the Centra Foundation and volunteer M.A.A.M. (Mammograms Annually A Must) committee have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s M.A.A.M. Luncheon.

We can’t gather in person this year, but we can still help women who can’t afford an annual screening mammogram!  Please consider a sponsorship or a donation to the M.A.A.M. fund today. 

Visit our M.A.A.M. page to view our generous sponsor listing, to learn more about the importance of annual screening mammograms and to see the positive impact this year’s sponsors are having on the uninsured and underinsured members of our community.  Your support makes a difference!

Virtual Event - Live Stream

Thank you to all who joined us live from the safety and comfort of your home as we honored four distinguished Centra Champions for their service to our community and healthcare system:

George A. Hurt, MD
Carolyn W. Jacques, M.Ed, RNC
Cecilia M. MacCallum, MD
Thomas W. Nygaard, MD

It’s not too late to participate!  You can still honor a Centra Champion, or any of Centra’s dedicated caregivers, by making a gift in their honor.  We will notify the caregiver of your thoughtfulness, but not the amount of your gift. Your support helps us raise critical funds for your local nonprofit healthcare system.  Click here to learn more!
