Livy’s Ice Cream Shop donated $500, a portion of proceeds from October, to the Ladies First initiative of the Martinsville-Henry County Coalition for Health and Wellness. Ladies First is a community breast health initiative to increase access to screening mammograms and other diagnostic tests for uninsured women in their community.
The basic requirements to participate in the initiative are:
- You do not have insurance or have insurance that does not cover mammograms
- Referral by a local doctor
- Proof of income

The donation will help increase access for local women to receive mammography screenings.
