Review for Partners For Breast Cancer Care Inc, Fort Myers, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Our mission is to save lives and reduce suffering from breast cancer through improved early detection, education, and access to healthcare.

Partners for Breast Cancer Care, Inc. is a unique organization that is dedicated to serving our community's women and men who desperately need our help. We fund breast care procedures such as screening, diagnostic testing, surgery, and treatment for underserved Lee County women and men at no cost to them. Our clients are carefully screened for qualification and must prove to our case managers that they are up to and including 200% of the poverty level, have lived in Lee County for one year, have no health insurance and a valid Social Security number. We have experienced an increase in the number of people needing our services in the past few years while funding has become increasingly more difficult to secure. we are a "one-of-a-kind" oganization offering free breast health care to Lee County residents, many of whom have nowhere else to turn for assistance.

Partners for Breast Cancer Care, Inc. is the only non-profit organization in Lee County that provides no-cost breast screening and diagnostic testing to low-income, uninsured women and men of any age. Since 2006 we have helped 7,454 residents and provided 11,665 breast care procedures at no cost to the client. During this time we have expended $1,531,685. Our services fund mammograms, ultrasounds, stereotactic, ultrasound-guided and MRI guided biopsies, surgical consultations, breast MRI and excisional breast biopsy. We have referred 5,404 women and men to other providers to assure that all receive needed services. In the past 7 1/2 years we have diagnosed 1 man and 103 women with breast cancer.

Our mission is to save lives and reduce suffering from breast cancer through improved early detection, education, and access to healthcare.
