Muffins for Mammograms

Mammograms for Women without Insurance
Because 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, we also understand the importance of breast cancer screenings. Women living in Summit County who are uninsured may qualify for mammography assistance through Akron General’s Muffins for Mammograms.

Akron General Medical Center, the Main Street Gourmet and 94.9 WQMX raise funds during the month of October, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, to help offset the cost. Learn more about our annual fundraising efforts for this program and how you can support it.

Who qualifies for a free mammogram?

There is no age limit, however, a person must meet the following guidelines to qualify for one free screening mammogram yearly through the Muffins for Mammograms program.

  • Have a primary care physician to whom the results can be sent
  • Have a written order from your primary care physician
  • No form of insurance coverage
  • Be scheduled at an Akron General Reflections Breast Health Center

If you do not have a primary care physician, call Akron General’s Need-A-Physician service at 330-344-AGMC (2462) for a referral.
