October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and a time to spread the word that early detection saves lives. According to the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer in women. If found early, women have up to a 90% chance of survival, whereas survival drops to about 15-20% if found in later stages.
Estes Park Health Foundation is raising money to bring 3D mammography capability to Estes Park Health in 2020. 3D mammography has been shown to detect 20-65% more incidences of breast cancer than 2D mammograms and also in earlier stages. Learn more at GivetoEPH.org/3DM.
Pinktober at Estes Park Health Lobby
Donate $20 to bring 3D mammography to Estes Park Health in the name of a Cancer Warrior in your life. We’ll inscribe a pink ribbon in the name you request and post it in the hospital lobby for the month of October.
