Breast cancer is still life-threatening, and until we can keep people from dying from it, we need your help – your generosity is crucial as we continue this fight.
Sisters By Choice has been in the forefront of addressing disparity surrounding breast cancer. Each year, we perform at least 1,000 free breast health services that include mammograms, breast exams, breast biopsies, and sonograms, to uninsured, underinsured, and homeless women and men.
The demand for these lifesaving services is great in this economic climate, and the demand continues to grow. This is a great challenge, and we depend on grants, corporate sponsorships, and public donations to be able to continue to provide these services to the public.
Every day we get closer to defeating breast cancer. But until we do, we need your support to save every life that is threatened by this heartless killer. Breast cancer is the leading cause of new cancers diagnosed among women and accounts for 22% of all cancer deaths, making it the second leading cause of death among women in Georgia.
Georgia ranks 10th in population among the fifty states, but 40th in physician supply per 100,000 people. In fact, latest figures tell us that 15% of Georgia’s population is medically underserved for primary care, and access to more specialized services is even worse.
