Nonprofit Overview

Mission: We are an educational, fundraising public charity that was started with the purpose of teaching others about thermography and providing women, who would not otherwise have it the opportunity and funds for certified breast exams. Knowing that the research has been done and the facts show that early breast disease risk screening with digital breast thermal imaging can change a life. We are passionate about and committed to providing awareness that: Annual breast thermography, breast examinations and mammography can improve women’s chances of early breast cancer detection by 98%. We have the ability to beat breast disease using naturopathic medicine. Thermography is a preventative tool that acts as an early warning system for detecting breast disease. We have the capability, knowledge and technology of thermal imaging to detect other disease conditions in the new emerging imaging arena. Our conviction is this: We can educate, we can save live, we can save women, and we can save someone you love…..we want you to know~

Beyond Pink Spokane is a for purpose "fun raiser" that provides funds for local women who could not otherwise afford to have advanced risk assessment thermal imaging, aka thermography. Beyond Pink has one event a year, the 2nd Friday of October. It is a designer bra fashion show with live and silent auctions. This years event is October 10, 2014 at the Spokane Convention Center. Beyond Pink is the most fun you could have...saving a life!

Today's thermography can help to monitor breast health providing information on current and future risk of breast cancer. This is an adjunct tool to mammography that can greatly increase mammographys ability to detect disease. As a unique test of physiology, thermography provides information no other testing can. With gray scale images we can see vascularity, which indicates the amount of estrogen in breast tissue. Estrogen dominance is considered a high risk factor for breast cancer and thermography can indicate when hormonal testing is imperative. Because breast tissue can produce estrogen locally, estrogen levels can actually be up to 50 times the amount shown on serum levels. Thermography can see disease at the inflammatory level up to 10 years before a mass would be detected by mammography. Because thernography is radiation free, painless and non-contact, it is ideal for young women ages 20 - 40, where mammography is not generally indicated.

Thermography has been FDA approved as an adjunct breast cancer screening tool to mammography since 1982. It is not yet regulated, so it's important to go to a center that is recognized with high standards.
