ATLANTA - A new partnership has formed between Good News Clinics in Gainesville and the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer. <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 />
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 />

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 />
An intergovernmental agreement that has been in consideration for four years that would bring turn lanes and new pavement to the intersection of McEver Road and Gainesville Street is going to wait, at least for now.
