The Mammojam Music Festival supports breast cancer screening and treatment programs for uninsured and low income women by raising money through a series of live music and artistic performances. MammoJam provides aid and relief to those distressed with breast cancer and their families and supports charitable organizations that provide breast cancer prevention and treatment services.

Description:
MammoJam hosts several live music and artistic events each year to support our cause. The "MammoJam Music Festival" in Federal Hill engages top local and national artists to support diagnosis and treatment services for under-insured women. Since 2004 MammoJam has raised over $100,000 for Harbor Hospital's Breast and Cervical Cancer Center and the Hoffberger Breast Center at Mercy Medical Center.

The "Jog Jog" 5k Fun Run was established in 2011 to help us reach a new cadre of supporters and provide an additional vehicle to support MammoJam's mission.

The organization includes a volunteer Board of Directors and volunteer committees for each event. As our organization and commitment to funding worthwhile programs for under-insured women grows, so too will the scope and size of our events. For example, in 2009 we hosted a large scale (1500+) fundraiser in Baltimore City with Emmylou Harris and Patti Griffin. With this growth comes the need to expand the size and expertise of our Board of Directors so we may maintain the high level of leadership and innovation that have enabled us to support so many women and worthwhile programs.

History:
MammoJam was created in October, 2003 by two friends with a passion for live music and loved ones who survived breast cancer. Since the first music festival in 2004, MammoJam has used live music performances and artistic showcases to promote the importance of early breast cancer diagnosis and treatment and to insure access to these vital resources for under-insured and homeless women in the Baltimore area. MammoJam celebrates the courage of breast cancer survivors and the compassion of friends and family members who are all personally touched by the impact that the disease has on their loved ones.

In 2009 MammoJam and harbor Hospital worked to fund a bilingual outreach worker to engage almost 300 Spanish speaking women each year in their free Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening program. Each month Harbor hosts two "Amiga Days" focused on providing screening and treatment for Spanish women enrolled in the program.
