Paint The Town Pink
Every October, St. Joseph's/Candler and the Savannah Morning News partner for an annual breast cancer awareness campaign called Paint The Town Pink. This fundraising campaign raises money for the Telfair Mammography Fund.
The purpose of Telfair Mammography Fund is to provide no-cost breast health services to uninsured and underinsured individuals. These services include screening and diagnostic mammograms, breast ultrasounds, MRI and image-guided breast biopsies.
With support from campaigns like Paint The Town Pink, we have helped thousands of women since the Mammography Fund was created in 2005. Please donate today and help us help thousands more.
Join us in celebrating the 13th annual Paint The Town Pink
Admittedly things are a lot different this year with the COVID-19 pandemic. However, that hasn't stopped women from getting breast cancer. Yearly mammograms and monthly self-checks continue to be so important. For those that can't afford a mammogram, the Mammography Fund may be of some assistance.
And you can help too! Throughout October, look for inspiring local stories on breast cancer prevention, treatment, survivorship, courage and hope. Also, look for a chance in the Savannah Morning News to win one of the weekly prizes and our grand prize Chatham 3-Speed Beach Cruiser.
