Dollars for Mammograms

A Decade of Serviceswoman

Since our inception in 2000, Dollars for Mammograms has provided thousands of women who are uninsured or unable to afford them with no-cost mammograms and, when medically necessary, no-cost diagnostic mammograms, breast ultrasounds, stereotactic and ultrasonic needle biopsies.  Without our services, these women would not have received these expensive breast-health medical procedures.


Serving Several Communities in Southwest Florida

Dollars for Mammograms serves women who live in these Florida communities: Englewood, Grove City, Cape Haze, Rotonda West, Placida, Boca Grande, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, North Port and Venice.


Early Detection Leads to Higher Cure Rates

Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer among women with the exception of skin cancer.  It is the second-leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.  Florida ranks third in the nation for the number of new cases of breast cancer.  The good news is that breast cancer death rates are decreasing, largely due to early detection and newer, better treatments.  Breast cancer is curable if detected early.

Your contribution to Dollars for Mammograms can make a difference.

 
Staggering Breast Cancer Statistics
  • Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer among women with the exception of skin cancer.
  • It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.
  • Florida ranks third in the nation for the number of new cases from breast cancer.
  • The good news is that breast cancer death rates are decreasing largely due to early detection and newer, better treatments.
  • The earliest sign of breast cancer is usually detected on a mammogram before it can be felt by a woman or health care provider.
  • Women should know how their breasts normally feel and report any breast change promptly to their health care provider.
  • Yearly mammograms are recommended for women starting at age 40.  The age to stop depends on the individual person and their risk factors.

Early detection saves lives and the current statistic for a woman’s chance of getting breast cancer in her lifetime is “1 in 8”.
