Reba’s Vision gains 2nd Act Grant
Several events scheduled for October – By Rusty Bradshaw (Independent Newsmedia)
Women who want to get 3-D digital mammograms have an outlet to get them free of charge, thanks to two organizations devoted to helping fight breast cancer.
Reba’s Vision, operated by Surprise resident Reba Mason-Mikutowicz, a victim of breast cancer herself, received a grant from A 2nd Act to provide 10 women with the 3-D mammograms. One of the main goals for Reba’s Vision is to provide 3-D mammograms.
A 2nd Act’s mission is recognizing that healing is helping to celebrate and support women survivors of all cancers who are using their newly realized gifts of life and experience to give back for the greater good.
Ms. Mason-Mikutowicz was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011 and underwent a double mastectomy, through which it was discovered she had 3c invasive ductal carinoma. She went through three different rounds of chemo, all 16 weeks, and more than 96 rounds of readiation.
