Gold said the foundation uses donated funds to provide free screening mammograms and financial assistance for every day expenses families going through treatment for breast cancer struggle to pay, like mortgage and utilities. The foundation contracts with 14 area hospitals, including Mercy Hospital in Cassville, which gives patients the opportunity to obtain mammograms locally, versus having to drive long distances. Roden emphasized that workers are always encouraged to help their community through activities like fundraisers or other means of support.
