A Silver Lining Foundation Health Fair Slated for October 25

As a breast cancer survivor, Dr. Sandy Goldberg understands the need for immediate and thorough care. Goldberg, founder of A Silver Lining Foundation (ASLF), which provides no cost screening mammograms and other breast cancer resources to uninsured and underinsured women, will host the ASLF and Banco Popular 3rd Annual Health Fair on October 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Roberto Clemente High School, 1147 N. Western Avenue in Chicago.

Held in the heart of Humboldt Park, the health fair will pre-qualify uninsured and underinsured women for no cost screening mammograms, and also provide no cost health screenings, educational information and outreach services, breakout sessions, and a "day spa" featuring complimentary manicures, chair massages, haircuts and skin care demonstrations. All services and educational brochures are offered in both Spanish and English. Area residents and families are encouraged to attend the fair to benefit from these services.

The Roberto Clemente High School ROTC Drill team will perform and members of the Chicago Fire Department’s Fitness Team will guide health fair attendees through a fun workout and exhibit.
No charge for attendance. For more information on the Health Fair and on ASLF, visit or call (312) 345-1322.
