In the past two and a half months, the Becky Baker Foundation has provided close to 300 free mammograms to those who are underinsured or uninsured.
This figure includes those who have registered for free mammograms on the Foundation website (www.beckybakerfoundation.com) as well as cash grants that have been given to Wake Forest Imaging and Forsyth Breast Center, both servicing the North and South Carolina regions.
The Foundation strictly adheres to all HIPAA laws, requiring only a legal name and birthdate in order to schedule the free mammogram with the breast center of choice. However, with many recipients contacting us again after their 2D pre-screening mammogram, it appears that six women so far have been saved, as some irregularity was discovered during their test.
The Foundation remains self-funded, refusing all donations.
One fear my wife had, especially at the end, was that she would "be forgotten," and that her life "did not make a difference or accomplish anything." I promised her that she would never die. I am honoring that promise.
