I received this recently, and felt it was a useful piece of information to pass on. A 'painless' way to help.
The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on "donating a mammogram" for free (pink window in the middle).
This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammogram in exchange for advertising.
Here's the web site! Pass it along to people you know.

Yeah I have clicked too but unfortunately I lost my mother when she was 39 to breast cancer. Thankfully the treatments get better every day. I now have several friends and acquaintances who are survivors.

Thanks for reminding me Donna. I will include this link in my newsletter. That might help just a little.

There has been three people in my life touched by breast cancer and I have added this to my favorites list so that I can go to it everyday and do my part to help out someone else! I will pass it on too! thanks for the info!

|I think the Breast Cancer Awareness website has a link where they will send you an e-mail 5 days a week. I have an e-mail 5 days a week, just open the e-mail and click on the link to donate mammograms. I do it every day; makes me feel like I'm doing a litle something to help. it's not much, I guess, but every little bit helps.||

Done. Both my mom and aunt were breast cancer victims, and now I'm getting the mammograms every 6 months due to some thickening tissue. I wish that these were free for everyone in the US like they are here!
