SWEET IMPRESSIONS RAISE FUNDS FOR B.C.U.P.S. PROGRAM

Sweet Impressions Raise Funds for B.C.U.P.S. Program ~ The Marlette Regional Hospital (MRH) Foundation would like to thank and recognize Sweet Impressions Salon in Sandusky, MI for the recent donation of $650 to MRH’s B.C.U.P.S. program. B.C.U.P.S. provides free mammogram screenings to uninsured and underinsured patients, financial assistance for diagnostic testing services, and grant funding for breast cancer patients in our local communities. Melissa Brown, owner of Sweet Impressions said, “We want to raise awareness in the community and bring hope to our clients and their families that are facing breast cancer. Our commitment to our clients goes beyond the services we provide at Sweet Impressions.”

The B.C.U.P.S. program is in place to financially assist patients in acquiring important screening mammograms and diagnostic testing services such as a diagnostic mammogram, breast ultrasound, or an ultrasound-guided breast biopsy. For patients that have been diagnosed with breast cancer and are currently undergoing treatment, B.C.U.P.S. provides grant funding and applicants are eligible to reapply for funding every 6 months. Grant funding is available to residents of Sanilac, Tuscola, Lapeer, and Huron Counties based upon current program funding.

Patients that do not have health insurance coverage or those who are underinsured (limitations with coverage, large out-of-pocket deductible, younger than age criteria for screening, etc.) may qualify for screening and testing services through the B.C.U.P.S. program.

Marlette Regional Hospital extends its sincere thanks to Sweet Impressions for their generosity and support of local cancer prevention programs that help residents in our Thumb Area communities!
