"Click to Give" Breast Cancer Site Raises More Than $1 Million for Free Mammograms

Seattle, WA, January 30, 2009 --(PR.com)-- In January 2009, the National Breast Cancer Foundation recognized The Breast Cancer Site as a major benefactor in the fight against breast cancer.

The Breast Cancer Site’s contributions to NBCF’s free mammogram program for women in need reached more than $1 million accumulative over three consecutive years.

Since its launch in October 2000, The Breast Cancer Site (http://www.thebreastcancersite.com) has established itself as a leader in online activism and in the fight to prevent breast cancer deaths. With a simple, daily click of the pink button at The Breast Cancer Site, visitors help provide mammograms to those in need. Visitors pay nothing to participate in the Click to Give program. Mammograms are paid for by the site’s sponsoring advertisers, with 100% of the money raised through the Click to Give program going to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

A portion of all sales of products in The Breast Cancer Site’s store also benefits NBCF’s free mammogram program.

The Breast Cancer Site was founded to help fund free mammograms to women in need: women for whom early detection would not otherwise be possible.

In 2008, the site provided funding for more than 7,000 mammograms for low-income, uninsured, and working poor women throughout the United States and Puerto Rico last year. Visitor clicks funded 3,315 mammograms. Purchases from The Breast Cancer Site store funded an additional 4,262 mammograms for women in need (up from 3,349 in 2007).

In recent years, The Breast Cancer Site also has worked with organizations like the Mayo Clinic to fund research for a cure through the site’s Gifts That Give More™ program. The Breast Cancer Site Endowed Fund for Breast Cancer Research underwrites the salary of a breast cancer researcher at the Mayo Clinic including a recent grant of $75,000 made in October 2008 to honor Breast Cancer Awareness Month (total gifts from The Breast Cancer Site to Mayo for research reached $250,000 by December 2008).
