Free Mammogram Check out Campaign Benefits Community

Ampang Puteri Specialist Hospital nurses, physicians and staff from all departments work diligently to provide exceptional care to our patients and also contribute selflessly to a variety of community causes and events.  
One such activity that provided great benefit to members of our community was the recent mammography campaign where  Ampang Puteri Specialist Radiology Department  offered free or reduced cost mammograms to women who may have not been able to afford them.
Who needs a mammogram? The answer was clear: All women over the age of 40. The follow up question was: Who schedules a mammogram? That answer was also clear: Not all women who need one do, as too many women are underinsured or uninsured and do not schedule mammograms. Mammogram program was implemented to make sure that all women that needed a mammogram had the opportunity to receive one.
Latifah Hamid , Manager of the Radiology Department at Ampang Puteri Specialist Hospital , says mammograms are a critical step in detecting breast cancer. “We’re doing everything possible to work with women so that they can have this potentially life-saving exam.” With funding from a generous grant from the  Ampang Puteri Specialist Radiology Department Foundation, free mammograms were provided for women who qualified through a mammogram voucher program.
Vouchers were distributed to women in the community as a result of a needs assessment from a physician. The ongoing effort also extended mammogram appointments into evenings and weekends. Dozens of free mammogram vouchers have been made available to underinsured or uninsured women in the community and at last count, 53 were redeemed at the Ampang Puteri Specialist Radiology Department. 
Vouchers are still available. For more information call or visit any of these locations:

The winner of  Gin & Jacqie Breast Cancer Awareness Bag Print Design Contest 2011

Known as gin & Jacqie Breast Cancer Awareness Bag, the print is actually the winning design from the gin & Jacqie Breast Cancer Awareness Bag Print Design Contest (yes, we know the names are pretty long) which started since May. The winner is a male-surprise! surprise!
While the design is intricate and can be hard to decipher (that's why you call it art), it described the psychological aspect of women with breast cancer where she will be empowered as she weaves through the complicated twist of love and the ensuing changes which is akin to women  who are undergoing their breast cancer journey where their faith and love will be put to the test. Yes, yes, we know you will be asking which part of the design tells the story, but art is suppose to be that way. And, it is the winning design after all-it has the highest votes!
Anyway, it is available at Isetan KLCC and The Gardens, TANGS Pavilion, Cziplee Stationary Store Bangsar and Inner Secret Stores and online via on for only RM18 each. You can get it from MBCA too!
