WE CAN DO IT! Join Us in the Fight Against Breast Cancer by Joining the Pink Army today.
Pink Army is not about military recruitment nor is it a club with an affinity toward the color pink – it’s about saving lives from breast cancer.
One out of eight women will be affected by breast cancer in their lifetime. In fact, over 225,000 women are estimated to be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012, and it is the one of the leading causes of cancer death in women. By having a routine mammogram and performing self exams, women are much more likely to catch breast cancer at its early stages, where the chances of being cured are higher. This test is not only simple — it will save lives. So why don’t more women have annual mammograms? That’s where the Pink Army comes in.
The Pink Army takes the qualities of our military soldiers – bravery, pride, empowerment and resilience – and utilizes these qualities to help spread the benefits of receiving a mammogram.
Each Pink Army “soldier” has a set of missions to choose from in order to contribute to the awareness campaign. These missions include getting a mammogram, recruiting friends and even throwing a “Pink Party.” Once completed, each mission allows soldiers to climb the ranks and get fun, unique Pink Army rewards. Purchases of Pink Army gear and donations benefit the Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel Center for Women’s Health to provide mammograms to underinsured or uninsured women. Businesses and organizations can offer discounts and/or host a Pink Party.
Enlist. Get Screened. Donate. Join the Pink Army today!
