Breast cancer survivor, mother of three daughters, and jewelry design entrepreneur Diane Katzman celebrated a very special birthday in February 2010. One she almost didn't make. But thanks to a routine mammogram, her cancer was found and treated, allowing her to make that special birthday. To celebrate, she invited friends and family to give her one gift — providing breast health screenings for uninsured and under-insured women in Missouri, so they could make their special birthdays, too.
“I probably wouldn't have made it to my 50th birthday," says Katzman. "So it got me thinking — why not start a tribute to the special women in our lives with a Mom-a-gram to fund mammograms?"
Since then, her dedication to helping provide breast health services for others has not waned. Every year for Mother's Day, Katzman continues to ask friends, family and members of the community to make contributions in honor of their mothers, sisters and friends; to give a Mom-a-gram.
Join Katzman's challenge by donating a Mom-a-gram.
When you give a Mom-a-gram, your donation will be used to give an uninsured or under-insured woman the gift of a mammogram, ultrasound or biopsy. The Missouri Baptist Breast HealthCare Center's digital mammography van travels throughout the St. Louis metro area and to rural Missouri to provide mammography screenings. Mom-a-grams make it possible for more women to receive breast health screenings with the most advanced technology, which helps radiologists better detect subtle yet significant changes in breast tissue including those younger than 50, those with dense breasts and pre-menopausal or peri-menopausal women.
For your gift of a Mom-a-gram, we will send you a tribute card to honor your someone special. In addition, you will receive a beautiful piece of Diane Katzman Design jewelry to enjoy for yourself or to present as a gift.
