Peace of Mind
Catholic Charities of Southwestern Ohio is an organization that receives funds from the 1 Faith 1 Hope 1 Love campaign. $139,499 of the 2017 funds were used for Health and Education Programs for Hispanic and Latino immigrants. The follow is reported on their website highlighting Su Casa Success Stories.
Maria is grateful for Su Casa for providing her with an opportunity to receive her first mammogram at a health fair last year. Her visit led to a biopsy in February, and she’s relieved she’s cancer free.
However, as she received this great news, her cousin died of breast cancer. Her cousin lacked access to regular mammograms. Maria didn’t have the money to pay for a mammogram.
So now Maria is a vocal proponent of Su Casa’s mammography program and shares her story at her church. Nearly a dozen women responded seeking information.
Su Casa Hispanic Center provides free mammograms every month. To schedule an appointment, call Mariela Baltonado Murillo 513-672-3783. The next mammograms will be from 9 am to 3 pm, April 6 outside the Su Casa Hispanic Center at Midpoint Tower in Roselawn.
