Center for Family Health is contributing to breast cancer awareness by selling pink ribbon pins and donating the funds to the Susan G. Komen Foundation during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Staff will be able to purchase the pink ribbon metal pins to add to their name tags, with proceeds going to Komen Foundation. Most donations to the Komen Foundation support breast cancer education, research, and screenings.
“All too often, women delay seeking diagnosis for a breast lump. They live in terror of what it might be, what it might cost, what it will do to their family,” said Molly Kaser, CEO and President of Center for Family Health. “We can and do help women get regular mammograms so no one has to live with this fear and uncertainty.”
The Jackson-area Health Center will feature posts on its Facebook page, as well as on its website at http://www.centerforfamilyhealth.org/ — all dedicated to giving people information about breast cancer.
On October 26, Center for Family Health will also have a giveaway for patients, and staff will be wearing pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
