Program Provides Funding for Mammograms

Kay Darlington touched so many throughout her life, including but certainly not limited to her grandson Shea Theodore, defenseman of the Vegas Golden Knights, and her doctors at Comprehensive Cancer Centers. To honor her memory, Comprehensive and Shea have teamed up to create a new fund for Susan G. Komen known as “Kay’s Power Play Fund.”

Impact of Kay’s Power Play Fund

Nevada’s mammography rate remains more than 5% below the national average, currently sitting at 67%. Approximately 2,490 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed in Nevada in 2021.

Kays Power Play Fund will provide Nevadans with access to free screening and diagnostic services through the Dignity Health RED Rose Program. The fund, named in Kay Darlington’s memory, Shea’s grandmother, will empower Nevadans and serve as a critical lifeline for those needing resources like mammograms. Those most in-need – including the uninsured, underinsured and patients under 40 years-old, whose screening and diagnostic mammograms are not covered by insurance – may tap into Kay’s Power Play Fund for financial assistance. Kays Power Play Fund will provide screenings & diagnostics to individuals who reside in Nevada who are uninsured or underinsured. Additionally, all patients will be screened for The Nevada BCCP (Breast & Cervical Cancer Program) eligibility.

“We have witnessed firsthand that Shea’s passion for helping the Southern Nevada community is right up there with his passion on the ice,” said Comprehensive’s Executive Director, Paul Dieter. “In our efforts to help folks stay one step ahead of a cancer diagnosis, he is a valuable teammate. Kay’s Power Play will help enhance Nevada’s preventative landscape and, ultimately, save lives.”
