KINGMAN - Kingman Regional Medical Center has received two grants that will provide funding for breast health services to the community.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation awarded $75,000 to KRMC, enabling the hospital to continue funding its Breast Health Navigator position. KRMC's breast health navigator, Shauna Davis, offers guidance to patients dealing with issues of breast health.

Davis serves as the first point of contact for those who receive the unwelcome news of possible breast cancer. She provides information and support throughout diagnosis and treatment by guiding patients through the health care system, facilitating communication with healthcare providers, connecting patients to community and social services, and identifying and assisting with other personal needs.

Susan G. Komen Arizona has awarded Kingman Regional Medical Center $75,000 in grant funding to continue providing free mammograms to uninsured and underinsured women in the community.

Through its Catch It Early program, KRMC provides a screening mammogram using advanced 3D technology with no out-of-pocket costs to women who meet the following criteria:

• Reside in Mohave County

• Age 40 or over

• Has not had a screening mammogram in the previous 12 months
