Programs: Turn Tulsa Pink, a project of Breast Impressions was held Oct. 22 - 29, 2011. We were successful in turning buildings pink, employees from companies all over the county wearing pink to work, and holding fundraising events. Ten local charities were highlighted for their work for women and children affected by cancer. Not just breast cancer but all cancers. To date over $46,000 was raised for those ten charities! We will be doing it again Oct. 20 - 27, 2011 and hope for even a greater response and greater results! Check out our Turn Tulsa Pink website at http://turntulsapink.org

Some quiet giving moments later become electric sparks that take you many different directions. As an author/artist/sculptor it was a moment in time that became life changing, mind boggling, earth shattering as to the effect it would have like the pebble in the pond. Judi and Nancy with Breast Impressions ignited a flame for women that will burn gloriously, brightly and forever in our health, and in our happiness ,spurring us onward to new heights, taking care of ourselves and remembering that when you give it is astounding the gifts you get in return. Truly each one who has been a part of this project has magnified her life for the sake of all women....and yes, we are worth it!!! Dream big, go for the brass ring, for we ARE the dreammakers!

Great Grass Roots organization that spend all of their money and time raising awareness of the need and availability for early detection and screening for breast cancer. This group raises money to provide screening for those who are not covered by Health Insurance. Although started in Oklahoma it is branching out and involving all different members of communities in several states in the US.

The Green Country Roller Girls teamed up with Breast Impressions in early 2008 to start a revolution in the world of flat track roller derby. BI now travels all over the US casting roller girls to help in their efforts to raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer research and education, especially for the under 40 crowd. We are planning another event for October 2010 with this organization again and are very much looking forward to it! We LOVE Breast Impression and Judi Grove for all they do!

I will ALWAYS be grateful to my own hometown Roller Girls, who contacted Breast Impressions to see how they could help. What a movement you girls started! And just think of the many lives we have saved since March 2008 with the breast self exam cards distributed to every woman who attends a bout across the nation now, not to mention the help that's been given to those facing breast cancer through the auctions of the casts. I truly LOVE my Green Country Roller Girls of Tulsa, OK!!! And thank you for giving me my Derby Name!! XOXOXO Mammy O'Gram :)
