Atrium Health celebrates Breast Health Awareness the entire month of October to encourage mammograms and other preventive screenings. Breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer in women. The key to beating breast cancer is early detection. Women should perform monthly self-breast exams, have regular clinical breast examinations by a trained medical professional, and schedule mammograms as recommended by their provider.
Use Time Out for Prevention to schedule all recommended preventive care and screenings, including mammograms. Preventive screenings can find conditions earlier, when they are easier to treat.
Celebrate Breast Health Awareness:
"Love yourself enough to take care of yourself."
Registered Medical Assistant, Rock Hill Pediatrics
Lynette knows there is a purpose for her battle with breast cancer. As a 10-year survivor, Lynette believes that purpose is to strengthen her faith, learn perseverance and encourage others. She says yoga helped her stay present and focused to beat the disease. Her advice is to love yourself enough to take care of yourself. Get screened!
Levine Cancer Institute: Project PINK was established to increase access to life-saving mammography screenings for uninsured women. Donations to The Project PINK Fund allow for “Free Mammography Days” in underserved communities where the need is highest. In partnership with Charlotte Radiology, the program’s state-of-the-art mobile breast center travels throughout the community offering free screenings in a convenient, compassionate environment.
If there is a positive cancer finding during either program, the patient will be navigated throughout the entire treatment from diagnosis to survivorship.
Support from local organizations, community partners, and other generous donations to the Project PINK Fund make these programs possible. Together we are saving lives.
For scheduling through Project Pink contact LCI Outreach or call 980-442-2509.
To donate directly to Project Pink or Project Pink Plus, visit the Project Pink site.
