COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - Five Baptist hospitals in Mississippi received funds to help women beat or prevent breast cancer. 

The funds came from the Memphis Mid-South Mississippi Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Foundation. 

The affiliate distributed 14 grants totaling more than $420,000 to programs that provide breast health and breast cancer services in 14 counties in Tennessee and 23 counties in north Mississippi. 

These include:  

  • Baptist-Golden Triangle in Columbus 

  • Baptist-Union County in New Albany 

  • Baptist-North Mississippi in Oxford 

  • Baptist-Booneville 

All were granted a collective sum of $47,595. 

Baptist-DeSoto in Southaven also received funds. 

"The monies will be used to fund mammograms for women who otherwise could not afford them," said Paul Cade of Baptist-Golden Triangle.
