The Dianne K. Bolt Breast Cancer Screening Memorial Fund
Providing the gift of hope through early detection.
The Dianne K. Bolt Memorial Fund is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that was established in Twin Falls, Idaho after the passing of Dianne in February of 2009. The fund partners with local hospitals to provide un/under-insured women in the local community access to free mammogram screenings, and in the words of Al Bolt, "to not only honor her, but to provide a service to our community which Dianne would have wanted".
Early detection is a key to effectively treating breast cancer. By serving those without the means to afford mammogram screening, the Dianne K. Bolt Memorial Fund fills a critical need in the local community.
DKB Fund does not fund research and is not affiliated with any other breast cancer organization. We feel that this fund is unique because the community's donations and support directly impact those nearby.
DKB currently provides access to FREE mammogram screenings in Seattle, WA and Twin Falls, ID
Statistics indicate that tumors diagnosed in younger women may be more aggressive and less responsive to treatment, making early detection key.
