Many Lamb residents have never participated in consistent on-going health care or wellness checkups for reasons of little or no income, lack of insurance, bouts of homelessness, fear of physical touching or simple personal self-neglect. Regular checkups of eyes, teeth, breast, prostate, hands, feet and nail care have been left undone in their past.
During the months of January and February three van loads of female Lamb residents, over age 45, along with female staff, nurses from Detweiler Family Medicine and Mercy Suburban General Hospital went to Lansdale Medical Group for a morning of Mammogram testing. With female staff willing to "go first," they modeled a "No Fear" approach to breast exams for all. All ladies who participated in "Check Ewe Tatas" day were given goodie gift bags, Sweet Repeats Thrift Shop gift certificates, a Ladies Luncheon at Clubhouse II in Upper Gwynedd, and played party games for prizes such as "Booby Bingo" and "Mammogram Trivia."
But, with the good news comes the bad. Three ladies will need to return for additional testing, and one lady in particular, taking her first Mammogram ever, revealed a sizeable mass requiring her family to be called immediately.
Lamb's Healthier Ewe program, initiated in 2011 with DetweilerFamily Medicine, has provided weekly proof that preventative health care efforts increase quality of life and saves lives. Please keep our residents in prayer as we pursue preventative health care and meet the challenges of the results we are finding.

MAKING NEW FRIENDS *thank you for thinking of us*
During January, 2013, students at Gwynedd Mercy Academy and the Giving Tree took advantage of the holiday break from classes to make and deliver delicious sandwiches for Lamb Foundation residents at our Clubhouse. The sandwiches were a much appreciated treat, but the real benefit of the event was the uplifting interaction between our residents and our new friends from Gwynedd Mercy Academy and Giving Tree.
During the past month, St. Maria Goretti conducted a Food Drive and picked Lamb Foundation to be the recipient. Food Donations are far more important to the operation of Lamb Foundation than most people realize.
