Mammograms for Women in Need
Mammograms are one of the best methods to catch breast cancer before it's too late. In fact, if the disease is caught early enough, the five-year survival rate is 96%. But many women in the United States lack health insurance that covers the full cost of mammograms, and cannot afford to pay for them out-of-pocket. Donations through this Gift That Gives More™ help fund free mammograms for low-income, uninsured, and working women. Thank you!
