#SewPINK Initiative 2020 - Welcome!
The #SewPINK Initiative is our Breast Cancer Awareness campaign that kicked off in October 2019. Our goals were to raise awareness, encourage people to get their screenings, come together as a community, and donate to breast cancer research. We believe breast cancer awareness is important all year, and although we emphasize it in October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month), our continuous goal is to provide resources and awareness year-round.

Donating to Breast Cancer Research
Every penny counts. This section explains what we're doing to help.
Early Detection Saves Lives
Despite its limitations, a mammogram is the most effective form of screening. It's not the most enjoyable appointment you'll have all year, but in 20 minutes a mammogram can identify cancer several years before any physical symptoms develop.
It's important to stay positive as you handle your screenings. 1 in 9 mammograms result in a callback for further testing, and 95% of these callbacks do NOT have cancer!
Encourage your loved ones to get screened and remember that breast cancer affects men as well as women. Let's stay on top of this together!
