ATLANTA - A new partnership has formed between Good News Clinics in Gainesville and the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer. <br /> <br /> The Good News Clinics have received a grant of $17,300 from the group to fund screening and diagnostic mammograms, as well as ultrasounds, to uninsured residents of Hall County.<br /> <br /> Good News spokeswoman Mary Baxter says if further diagnostic testing is required through ultrasound and/or biopsy, those procedures will be funded as well. The program especially targets women who are most in need of access to healthcare services and most at risk because of income and/or race.<br /> <br /> Other agencies in northeast Georgia, the counties they serve, and how their money will be used can be found by clicking on the link below.<br /> <br /> The Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer is entering its 12th year and is a two-day, 30-mile fundraising walk that takes place in Atlanta and attracts over 800 yearly walkers from all over the state. <br />
