“Breast cancer screening through mammography is critical for early detection and life-saving treatment,” according to Dr. Yuri Parisky, Chief of Staff at Mammoth Hospital, and leading expert in the field of breast cancer. “There is no substitute. Over the past 10 years, we have provided digital mammography for all patients in the Eastern Sierra regardless of ability to pay and successfully detected numerous cases of early breast tumors that have led to successful treatment,” said Parisky. “When Mr. Gregory learned that the Mammoth Hospital Foundation wanted to support us in upgrading to the latest 3D Tomosynthesis technology, he was first in line to volunteer financial support. We are extremely grateful for his leadership and generosity and that of Mammoth Resorts.”
