Friends & Family,
I have always felt strongly about getting mammograms early and having breast cancer awareness, especially since my wonderful Mom was diagnosed at age 50. She is a strong survivor of this terrible disease, and and early detection played in big part in her journey. In her name, I am supporting the Norma Pfriem breast cancer center this year in their 'Give the Gift of Time' campaign, and working on raising money for them. If you choose to donate to my cause, you will be helping women who may not otherwise be able to afford mammograms or other early detection screening get help.
We all know someone who has had this terrible disease, and by supporting me in my cause, you not only help them, but their husband, sister, Mom, aunt....any of their family members who hold that woman so tight.
Anything you can donate would be MUCH appreciated. I know money is tight this time of year, so even $10 is amazing!
Thank you for your support!

Norma Pfriem will be participating in Giving Tuesday. As part of the NPBC Giving Tuesday initiative, “Give the Gift of Time” early detection saves lives but not all women can afford it. We need YOU to help us give the gift of time and achieve our goal of raising $20,000. Your gift will allow Norma Pfriem Breast Center to financially assist women who otherwise could not afford the screening and diagnostic testing such as Mammograms, Ultra Sounds, and Ultra Sound Guided Biopsies that could potentially save their lives. Early detection is sometimes the difference between life and death. Due to lack of insurance or high deductibles many women are forced to put off testing. These funds will be used to financially assist medically uninsured/underinsured. So that no women should have to choose between putting food on their table or bearing the cost of medical screening. Your funds will allow the chance of early detection.
