Sonoma Valley Hospital’s Project Pink Provided 71 No-Cost Mammograms During October

November 25, 2013

Sonoma Valley Hospital’s Women’s Health Center reported that it provided 71 no-cost mammograms during October as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The program, known as Project Pink, is made available as a community service through a special grant from the Sonoma Valley Hospital Foundation. It provides screening services to uninsured and underinsured women twice each year, during October and May.

“This program served 107 women this year,” said Harmony Plenty, Foundation Executive Director. “We have been building community awareness of this program and I’m happy to say that we are seeing a growing number of Spanish-speaking women access this service.”

“We especially want to thank community members for making this program possible,” Plenty said, noting that Envolve Winery, Jean’s Pajama Party and Wine Country Weekend all donated money to help fund the program this year.

The program is offered to women 40 years or older who live or work in Sonoma Valley, have not had a mammogram within the past 12 months, and are uninsured, underinsured, have a high deductible or are otherwise unable to afford a mammogram.

Women who wish to learn more about the program, which will again be offered in May 2014, should call 707-935-5215.

Donations to the program can be made online at and clicking on the Donate Now button, or by sending a check to SVH Foundation Office, 347 Andrieux St., Sonoma. Checks are payable to Sonoma Valley Hospital Foundation and donors should designate Project Pink as the recipient.
