THE STORY:

David Fisher wrote -

Use Your Feet to Defeat Breast Cancer!

 

The need for breast cancer education and services remains high in our area. Not only is breast cancer the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women, Riverside and San Bernardino counties have some of the highest mortality rates for breast cancer in all of Southern California. Experts attribute this high mortality rate to late diagnosis, indicating a lack of knowledge about breast cancer and its signs and symptoms.

 

Our mission is clear – we need to raise awareness about breast cancer to save the lives of those we love. When breast cancer is detected early, the five-year relative survival rate is 98%. The Pink on Parade Walk, and its associated marketing campaign, will help raise awareness about breast health issues for both men and women in our area. By walking on May 16, building a team, and spreading the word you are directly impacting the health of our community and the hold breast cancer has on it.



Pink on Parade will also raise money for The Pink Ribbon Place, Riverside's first and only breast cancer resource center. The Pink Ribbon Place helps over 1,000 families a year through its no-cost counseling services, support groups, health and wellness programs, and breast prosthesis and wig bank. To find out more about The Pink Ribbon Place, visit thepinkribbonplace.org.

ABOUT THE PINK RIBBON PLACE

 

Our Mission

 

To improve the quality of life for all those impacted by breast cancer in our community.

 

How We Serve

 

We promote healthy behaviors through breast health education, increasing community awareness through advocacy and action, provide patient navigation to those impacted by breast cancer, and expand access to diagnostic services for the uninsured and underinsured. All of our services and products are provided at no cost.

 

Our Impact

 

The Pink Ribbon Place provides services to nearly 1,000 families each year. Over the yeras, we have provided over 1,800 diagnostic services to uninsured and underinsured women under the age of 40 with breast health concerns.

Of those screened, 17 were diagnosed with breast cancer and received timely treatment and patient navigation – the youngest being only 15 years old.
