Tina Tyus-Shaw’s Mammogram Challenge

NEWS 3’s own Tina is encouraging women to seek testing for breast care health. Today she announced her “Mammogram Challenge” to help uninsured or underinsured women.

“I’ve seen how lives can be saved by a simple mammogram, and I believe that every woman should have access to them no matter her financial situation,” said Tyus-Shaw, who has served the viewers of the Coastal Empire for nearly 25 years. “That is why today I’m making a personal donation to the Telfair Mammography Fund at St. Joseph’s/Candler and I’m challenging the community to do the same.”

Along with the Telfair Mammography Fund at St. Joseph’s/Candler, who helped fund 617 mammograms last year, Tina wants to make sure all women are able to receive proper breast care.
