Kathleen Jontz Breast Health Fund

Helping Breast Health Patients in northern Michigan

Kathleen Jontz’s friends established the Kathleen Jontz Breast Health Fund in honor of how passionate she was about children not losing their mothers to breast cancer.

From the first mammogram through remission, the Kathleen Jontz Breast Health Fund supports, comforts, and cares for patients. Because early detection is so important for successful treatment, the fund offsets the cost for important diagnostic tests, including mammograms and biopsies, for patients in northern Michigan who are unable to afford them. During breast cancer treatment, patients receive assistance for transportation costs, lodging expenses, short term prescription aid, comfort items, and more. The fund also supports the needs of the Breast Health Department including equipment purchases.

Kathleen’s fund has already made a profound impact on our patients and their families. On behalf of our patients whose lives are impacted by breast cancer, thank you for supporting breast health in northern Michigan!
