Help close the healthcare gap by bringing early detection to those who cannot afford it.

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.

According to a recent report from the American Cancer Society, low-income women in at least twenty states are being turned away or put on long waiting lists for free cancer screenings. At least fourteen states cut budgets for free cancer screenings this year: Colorado, Montana, Illinois, Alabama, Minnesota, Connecticut, South Carolina, Utah, Missouri, Washington, Ohio, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Arkansas. In California alone, state cutbacks will leave an estimated 100,000 poverty-stricken women unable to get cancer screenings over the next six months.

Elsewhere in the world, the access to mammograms and the ability to catch the disease in its most treatable stages continues to be unavailable to most women. Yet the rate of breast cancer continues to grow. It is now the most common cancer in women in both developing and developed areas and the principal cause of death from cancer among women globally.

You can help. This Gift That Gives More™ helps fund free mammograms for low income, uninsured and working poor women.
