A word from Deena...

This page is dedicated to my sister-in-law, Vicky, who is now in remission.

As many of you know, this disease affects 1 in 8 women in the United States. Almost everyone knows at least one person that has been impacted by this horrible disease.

Keep in mind that this disease does impact women under the age of 40. Many think that if breast cancer does not run in their family they are safe or at a lower risk. The truth is that heredity is only involved in about 5% of all cases. Are you aware that men may also have breast cancer?

* Remember, Early Detection Saves Lives.*

It costs you nothing to help. Site sponsors cover the cost of the mammograms. You can click once per day in October (and beyond).

During October, the value of clicks on the button is DOUBLED, meaning your click gives twice the usual amount of funding toward free mammograms.

In addition, the site is featuring an uplifting survivor story of a woman who not only overcame breast cancer with a positive outlook and an amazing sense of humor, but also used it as a catalyst to pursue her dreams.

See the link to this inspiring story, updated every other day, on the page that loads immediately after you click on the pink button at:
