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.

The Protect Your Pumpkins breast cancer awareness campaign has been a success, with more women scheduling mammograms each October since we started it, in part because of the increased awareness. We want to make getting a mammogram as easy as possible. What are you waiting for? Schedule your mammogram today.

What’s Your Risk?

Here are a few ways you can support a loved one (and yourself) in the fight against breast cancer.

Pop-Up Pink Pumpkin Patch

7,500 pink pumpkins popped up overnight between Baton Rouge General's three campuses - Bluebonnet, Mid City and Ascension. The pumpkin patches, sponsored by b1Bank, were a part of our Protect Your Pumpkins breast cancer awareness campaign that promotes annual mammograms to women over 40.

What do pumpkins and breast cancer awareness have in common? More than you'd think! Watch below for the story behind the Pop-up Pink Pumpkin Patch.
