You can make an impact on someone’s life and help give the gift of early detection to a woman in need.
Join Maui Health Foundation’s Kokua for a Cause in honor of breast cancer awareness month.
Maui Health Foundation provides financial assistance covering the cost of mammograms and biopsies to uninsured and underinsured women on Maui. Our goal during the month of October is to raise $60,000 to cover as many mammograms and biopsies as we can.
All funds raised through Kokua for a Cause stay on Maui, to benefit the women of Maui with all procedures done at Maui Memorial Medical Center.

“Days felt like years when trying to process the news of an abnormal mammogram, coupled with the stress of figuring out how to pay for a second follow-up. I am very grateful to the Foundation that they were able to help when I needed it the most. I felt so relieved. If it wasn’t for the Foundation, I would have just not done the mammogram, because I couldn’t afford it.”
– grateful patient
Each year, Maui Health Foundation receives over 100 requests to fund mammograms, follow-up ultrasounds, and biopsies from uninsured and underinsured women on Maui. These women are faced with the possibility of a life changing situation and do not have any other means to afford the screenings they need to detect breast cancer early on, which could potentially save them.
One in eight women in the US will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. That is 1 in 8 of our mothers, daughters, sisters, family, or friends.
