I think the Power of Pink Organization is doing an amazing thing by providing all women with the opportunity to have a breast examination. Cancer is an all-too-familiar reality to so many people, and to women in particular.
I was really surprised to read that there were 940 diagnosed cases of breast cancer alone last year.
By allowing these women the chance to be tested for cancer, the Power of Pink is also helping ensure that they will be around for as long as possible to be wives, mothers, sisters, etc.
I really hope they are able to expand their services as mentioned in the article so they not only provide mammograms, but are also able to provide financial assistance to those who unfortunately need a follow-up visit and biopsy.
I also think the concept of being tested in a mobile mammography rather than a hospital or women's clinic is innovative. Sometimes the thought of having to go to the doctor's office is enough to keep people from going.
Reading about how the people behind the Power of Pink were so supportive and helpful for Lindsey during her battle with breast cancer is only more reason to support this organization.
