TESTIMONIALS

 

“As a 49 year old woman, I knew that a mammogram was very important. Without health insurance it seemed a near impossibility. The service I received from your organization relieved a great deal of anxiety for myself as well as my children. Thank you from all of us.”

Carmen L.
Power of the Pink Mammography Recipient

 

“I know that having that mammography van at Walmart did save my life. I had breast cancer in both breasts at the same time. It was a fast moving cancer and I could have been dead in 3 months. I know if I hadn’t walked in that day and had that mammogram, I wouldn’t be here.”

Sheila L.
Power of the Pink Mammography Recipient

 

“Power of Pink events help us catch breast cancer earlier making cures more likely.  Patient's lives are improved by this and it helps get women into the mentality that screening for cancer is important. It helps us take better care of patients and cure more people.

“The Power of the Pink is huge because it raises awareness and lets women know that they can get these mammograms if they cannot afford it.”
