One in nine women will get breast cancer in their lifetime.  Horrible odds ladies.  However, there is a 90% survival rate if you find breast cancer early.  And that is exactly why programs like "900 Woman" and "Tough Enough To Wear Pink" is offered by St. Luke's Magic Valley.

 According to St. Luke's website:

900 Women Project

Idaho has the lowest mammography rate in the U.S.; and Health District V, which includes Magic Valley, is tied for the lowest mammography rate in Idaho. Lack of screenings lead to a high rate of advanced stage breast cancers and many preventable deaths. The ultimate goal of this critical program is to increase the Magic Valley’s screening mammogram rate by 10 percent each year, or 900 additional women. Fundraising need: $75,000.

Find it early and live!  Than you to Larry Baxter, the St. Lukes Foundation Director for taking the time to talk to all of us about this awesome organization.
