Free Mammograms - The Breast Cancer Site

You may have noticed that I recently added something new on my right sidebar. Actually, you can hardly miss it - that bright pink box just slams you in the face.

It's a clickable box that takes you to The Breast Cancer Site, where you can click on a box that enables a fund through sponsors which gives free mammograms to those in need.

It doesn't cost you a cent, and literally takes less than 20 seconds (and my computer is slower than most). Wander this site and you'll learn about where these free mammograms are given, how many have been funded this month through clicks, and other ways you can help.

This site began eight years ago, and over the years has funded free mammograms for more than 11,000 women in need. There's a map which shows programs in the US which benefit from both clicks and from purchases in the site's store, as well as info on how many clicks are coming in on a daily, monthly and yearly basis.

Just do it - you can make a difference. Click on that bright pink box at the right, and then click on the button at the Breast Cancer Site. Do it every day, not just for October. This is an on-going program, and your click counts every time.

If you can add this clickable box to your website, you can link to them through this link.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month - so click on on this site and get started. Do it for your mother, your sister, your wife, your daughter. Do it for anyone you love who has breasts! :)

I click on this site every day in memory of my Mom, Gloria Chernecki, who died of breast cancer in 2003. Love you, Mom.
