Protect Your Pumpkins. Schedule Your Mammogram.
Although breast cancer deaths have dropped dramatically in the past two
decades, women in the U.S. still have a 1-in-8 lifetime risk of being
diagnosed with breast cancer. A mammogram can often find or detect breast
cancer early, when it is most treatable.
With the year we’ve had, getting a mammogram may be the last thing
on your mind, but don’t let this year get the best of you. 2020
has been a bust, but getting your mammogram is still a must! Schedule
your mammogram today.
Here are a few ways you can support a loved one (and yourself) in the fight
against breast cancer.
All proceeds go to benefit Baton Rouge General's Pennington Cancer
Center and its patients.
Every year in October, thousands of pink pumpkins “pop up”
overnight at our locations to promote breast cancer awareness. For the
safety of our patients and community, we’re skipping the patch in
2020. Instead, you’ll see awareness reminders in other ways around
town, like specially designed pumpkin yard signs that will pop up overnight
across the Baton Rouge area, in the yards of breast cancer survivors.
But don’t worry, the pink pumpkins will be back soon!
