In an effort to bring awareness locally, we host Cha Cha for the Ta Ta’s Breast Cancer Awareness Line Dance a Thon each year. All proceeds benefit the Memorial Hospital Foundation’s Breast Imaging Fund. The breast imaging fund provides mammograms and ultrasounds to special needs patients who would not be able to afford these diagnostic tests on their own.
Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.
