in the pink project mammogram
“On Wednesday we wear pink.” I’ve been so excited to share this In The Pink 2023 marketing campaign for Project Mammogram (Northeast Hospital Foundation). Last year, I had the opportunity to participate in the In The Pink luncheon committee to bring awareness of the services and assistance that Project Mammogram brings to the Northeast Houston community. Ensuring all women have access to lifesaving screenings for breast cancer. I have learned so much through this experience and have made so many incredible friends that I couldn’t wait to get involved again and do even more. The luncheon is on October 20th at Humble Civic Center. The event was completely sold out before the tickets went on sale so we’ve decided to double the number of attendees.

Project Mammogram exists to decrease the incidence of late-stage breast cancer diagnosis through outreach, education, preventative diagnostic screenings, and other breast services. Project Mammogram serves women and men who lack the access and funds available to be properly screened for breast cancer. Saving the lives of many and giving peace of mind to many more.
- Over 10,000 Lake Houston area residents have benefited to date
- 500-600 Services performed per year
- 6-12 cancers detected per year
According to the American Cancer Society, when breast cancer is detected early and is in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is 98%. Early detection includes doing monthly breast self-exams and scheduling regular clinical breast exams and mammograms. Project Mammogram provides these lifesaving screenings to those who might otherwise not have access, therefore decreasing late-stage breast cancer diagnoses.
