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. You can donate to the Telfair Mammography Fund year round. Please donate today and help us help thousands more.
