Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Pensacola
The American Cancer Society estimates that more than 500,000 Americans will die as a result of cancer this year. Today is your day to save one of those lives.
All it takes is one mammogram. One mammogram could keep a family of four together. One mammogram could enable a newborn baby to know her mother 18 years later. One mammogram could save a life!
A mammogram is the most effective means of detecting breast cancer. Like most cancers, the earlier you detect the disease - the better your chances of surviving.
But a mammogram isn't cheap. In some cases, the test can cost nearly $300. To make it worse, most health insurance companies don't cover mammograms. And with today's skyrocketing gas prices and rising food costs, you can bet that a mother sometimes has to make a difficult decision between a preventive test or next week's rent payment.
The American Cancer Society does many great things that benefit cancer victims. One of those benefits includes free mammograms. Of course, the ACS can't provide free mammograms for everyone because the cost is just too high. So the ACS has to turn away many women that desperately require this service.
Together, we can make one less woman get turned away. Together, we can save one person's life.
On October 25th, Two Maids & A Mop is participating in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Pensacola. The walk is a charity event designed to raise money for the American Cancer Society.
If we reach our goal of $300, one more woman will receive a free mammogram. And ultimately, one more life may be saved.
We have signed up to walk and hope you will join us in our effort by signing up to join our team or making a donation in support of our participation. Hope starts with us. And it ends with you.
