Tina Tyus-Shaw Challenges The Community To Support The Telfair Mammography Fund at St. Joseph’s/Candler

The long-time WSAV anchor has made a generous donation and is encouraging more to contribute to Tina’s Mammogram Challenge to help uninsured or underinsured women get breast care.

For years, WSAV’s Tina Tyus-Shaw has been telling the stories of breast cancer survivors. Today, she’s making a personal pledge to help those who cannot afford a mammogram.

“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.”

The Telfair Mammography Fund has helped thousands of uninsured and underinsured women get mammograms and other breast-health procedures. Last year, the mammography fund provided 617 mammograms plus dozens more ultrasounds, biopsies and other services.

For those services, the Telfair Mammography Fund paid out a total of $148,078.
