MammoJam is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization dedicated to promoting breast cancer screening and treatment programs for under-insured and low-income women. Since October 2003, all of MammoJam’s proceeds have provided annual support to local organizations like the Hoffberger Breast Center at Mercy Medical Center and Harbor Hospital’s Breast and Cervical Cancer Center in their fight against breast cancer. MammoJam provides annual funding to support a community outreach-translator at Harbor Hospital that has brought breast cancer screening and treatment to over 400 Hispanic women since 2010.
