Summa Screens

In 2014, the Stephen A. Comunale, Jr. Family Cancer Foundation became involved with Summa Screens Mammography Program through Summa Health System.  Summa Screens is a cancer screening program that provides free mammograms, breast ultrasounds and core biopsies to low-income, uninsured, or underinsured women.  In 2014 the Foundation was able to pay for 50 mammograms and in 2015, the Foundation will pay for 61 mammograms.   


Summa Screens is intended to assist women that need a screening mammogram; are between the ages of 40 and 64 (most women age 65 or older qualify for free mammograms through Medicare); are younger than 40 and experiencing symptoms or if a close relative has/had breast cancer.  Women in need of a breast mammogram and/or breast ultrasound are qualified on a case-by-case basis by Summa Health System.  If you're interested in qualifying for free breast imaging services, call Summa Health System at (330) 375-7300.
