Provide a Mammogram this Breast Cancer Awareness Month
For more than 30 years, October has been designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Thankfully, death rates from this dreadful disease have decreased over time because of heightened awareness that’s led to increased screening and improved treatment options, but there are still thousands of women who don’t have access to basic care, like annual mammograms.
Since the National Mammography Program began, National Breast Cancer Foundation has provided over 305,000 mammograms and diagnostic services to women in need across the country.
But we haven’t accomplished this feat without the help of our amazing supporters—that’s you!
In order to continue helping women who wouldn’t otherwise be able to get their necessary breast cancer screenings, we need your help. Mammograms usually cost around $150, which is a huge barrier to the underinsured, uninsured, and women who are the sole earners for their families.
Many women cannot afford their annual mammogram, and your support is the only way for these women to get the important screenings they need.
“I was working four jobs, seven days a week, and still making an income below the poverty line. I hadn’t had a mammogram in years. When I found out I could get a free mammogram I felt so grateful, surprised and blessed that I cried.”
— Celeste, a patient at St. Luke’s Hospital, Chesterfield, MO
When it comes to surviving breast cancer, early detection remains one of the most crucial steps, and mammograms remain the gold standard.
