Every two minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States. One in eight women will be diagnosed in her lifetime. Early detection of breast cancer can make a difference in surgery and other treatment options for the patient.
In 2021, an estimated 281,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in the U.S. as well as 49,290 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer according to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Join us Thursday to help raise money to help find a cure!
Freeman’s Helping Friends Mammogram Fund provides financial assistance for women to get this vital screening and also helps with post-surgical camisoles available at Pink Door Boutique®. Pink Door offers a variety of products to help breast cancer patients. Each year, Pink door sells a special t-shirt with a portion of proceeds supporting the Helping Friends Mammogram Fund. This year it bears the message “Where Hope Grows, Miracles Blossom.” Erimish special edition breast cancer bracelets are also available with Erimish donating a portion of those proceeds to Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks.
