Give Mom the Gift of Life for Mother's Day

Don’t know what to get Mom for Mother’s Day? Not even sure when Mother’s Day is? First of all, Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 11 (mark it in your calendar.) Second, if you’re stumped on what to buy the woman who gave you the gift of life, maybe you could give her the same gift. Confused?

A Silver Lining Foundation, which provides uninsured people with information on cancer resources, treatment options and support services, uses its Buy A Mom A Mammogram™ program to fund no cost screening mammograms to qualifying women in a timely and respectful fashion. To purchase a mammogram for your mother (or anyone’s mother, or sister, or daughter, or aunt… etc.), visit A Silver Lining Foundation’s Web site at, or call them at (312) 345-1322, or visit these three area Jewel-Osco locations throughout the month of May:

May 3, 2008; 7530 South Stony Island, Chicago; 9 a.m. – 11 a.m.
May 9, 2008; 440 East Rand Road, Arlington Heights; 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.
May 10, 2008; 1220 South Ashland, Chicago; 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

Representatives from A Silver Lining Foundation, including founder and breast cancer survivor Dr. Sandy Goldberg (also NBC-5’s nutrition expert), will be at each location to pre-qualify women for these no-cost screening mammograms.

If visiting Jewel-Osco isn’t your style (where do you buy your groceries?), stop by Flirty Girl Fitness™, a women’s lifestyle facility located in Chicago’s West Loop. For every new member that signs up before May 31, Flirty Girl Fitness™ will buy a mom a mammogram through A Silver Lining Foundation.

Now you have a gift for Mother’s Day and you know when Mother’s Day is. Don’t forget to buy her a card.
