Filling the Gap
Susan G. Komen closed their doors in 2017 and no longer provide 50,000 free mammograms annually in Arizona.

Mammography declined 80% and cancer diagnosis declined close to 50% in 2020. The medical community is expecting cancer to soar through 2030 due to the trickle effects of Covid with delayed/lack of screening, loss of insurance, decreased income, changes in lifestyle choices; diet, sedentary, lack of exercise, Vitamin D, increased alcohol, stress and more.
