New for 2018: 3D Mammography/Tomosynthesis Campaign
Goal = $250,000 by June 1, 2018
Help us bring the best Breast Cancer screening technology to the Columbia Gorge. YOU can be part of the effort to improve outcomes and detect breast cancer earlier.
Please consider a gift to the 3D Mammography Campaign in honor of someone you love during the holidays. We will provide a beautiful card recognizing your donation for the honoree or their family members.
Statistics show that 1 in 8 women will develop Breast Cancer. According to a study by the Journal of American Medicine, 3D mammography detects 41% more invasive breast cancers and reduces false positives (false alarms) by up to 40%.
