Double YOUR Impact!

November 12 2020
Double the Impact of your gift this holiday season! Make your gift in support of Headwaters before December 31st and have it matched dollar-for-dollar by the Morningview Foundation, to a maximum of $200,000!  
 
All gifts received in response to this challenge will be used to support the purchase of a new mammography machine with tomosynthesis (3D imaging) to support our growing number of breast cancer patients with better outcomes. Specifically, tomosynthesis allows for better results and screening for dense breasts, reduces false-positive rates, allows for earlier detection of breast cancer with symptoms and improved detection of breast cancer in women with no symptoms.

Breast cancer is a disease that effects so many in our community with Headwaters mammography volumes topping 3,600 annually. Achievement of our matching goal, together with the Morningview Foundation donation, will allow Headwaters to purchase this important advancement in breast cancer detection.

Dora Boylen-Pabst, CEO of the Headwaters Foundation explains that “this generous donation will challenge the community to rally their resources in support of Headwaters during the holiday season. While the Foundation’s holiday outreach is usually very well received, we are obviously worried about what the financial impacts of COVID-19 on our local families and businesses will mean to this very critical fundraising effort. We are hopeful that through this matching gift challenge, our community will give more, knowing that their gift is being matched dollar-for-dollar.”
