Free Mammograms
Lourdes Foundation sponsors our
FREE mammogram program. Mammograms are available by appointment only. All scans are done using our new Digital Mammography Machine. Patients who are uninsured, underinsured, have high deductables; have no signs or symptoms; and haven't had a mammogram within a year, are welcome to call for an appointment. Lourdes Foundation's Free Mammogram Program is generously funded by many donors including Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Healed with a Kiss, Benton Franklin Fair & Rodeo, and many generous individuals. If you are interested in donating to the program please email Kaury Balcom or call (509) 543-2412.

If you or someone you love cannot afford a mammogram and would like information on the next free mammogram day funded by Lourdes Foundation's Free Mammogram Program, please email Kaury Balcom or check our Diagnostic Imaging page for the next date.

KVEW-TV featured Lourdes Diagnostic Imaging on a recent broadcast that focused on digital mammography and the importance of yearly exams for women over the age of 40. The story coincides with October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the "Promise to Me" campaign.

We invite you to participate in the Garden of Our Lady of Lourdes Pavers Fundraiser. Gifts to the Lourdes Foundation are used to purchase advance medical technology and provide healthcare education, programs, and services to benefit the people in our region. Your contribution to this fundraiser allows the name of a loved one, specific group or organization to be forever inscribed on one of our garden pavers or monuments. If you would like to order an engraving, please email Connie Gillispie or download our informational brochure.

Miscellaneous Donations
To support hospital programs, services and equipment.

Donor Wall
Lourdes Legacy Society was designed to highlight and honor those who have remained and those who will become major donors — people who realize the importance of providing not only care, but exceptional health care. The members of Lourdes Legacy Society invite you to continue the tradition of exceedingly high quality health care that is available to our community, our family and our friends. All donor levels are based on cumulative giving totals.

Wills Clinics
Did you know… Washington State has a will for you if you don’t have one? Our wills clinics offer answers to these questions and more:
- Who do I need to talk with about my will?
- What should I bring to the appointment?
- What decisions do I make before the appointment?
- When should I update my will?
- How do I know if my will is complete?

Thank you for taking the time to explore the benefits of gift planning. We have an increasing number of donors who now are benefiting from life income gifts, gift annuities and other plans. There are several types of plans. Many of these have wonderful benefits for the gift donors. Many of these families have enjoyed increased income and generous tax savings.
