Why This Project Matters
"A lot of women would never have the opportunity to get mammograms or to get educated on breast cancer if it wasn't for Linda Creed."
Northern, Eastern, Western, Southern Chester County
Free Mammography Program
1 woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every 3 minutes.
With 1 in 8 women being diagnosed with breast cancer, denying access to mammograms and tests, these women could miss potential problems. Since many of these women have dependents, the emotional, financial and social costs of a delayed prognosis on families are immeasurable. Linda Creed’s core program is to provide free mammography screenings for women with little or no medical insurance working with over 14 health care providers in the region.
