Your clicks count! Each year, daily clicks at The Breast Cancer Site fund the value of hundreds of mammogams for women in need. Your actions, from clicking the pink button, to shopping in our store, and especially sharing the cause and The Breast Cancer Site with others, make a tremendous difference for real women dealing with breast cancer.
A mammogram is an x-ray of the breast and uses radiation. It is a tool used to diagnose breast cancer. Compression is a plastic plate that moves down onto the breast once the breast has been positioned on the machine.
Mammograms are an important part of safeguarding your health, especially if you're over 40 or have significant risk factors for breast cancer. The Affordable Care Act requires that health plans fully cover the cost of a screening mammogram every one or two years for women over Medicare and Medicaid cover them as well.
My friend Katharine sent me a message that the Breast Cancer Site was having trouble getting enough people to click on their site for donating free mammograms every day to underserved women. Their corporate sponsors and advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammograms in exchange for advertising. This sounded just like the Hunger Site.
