5 Fun Facts About Francine's Friends Mobile Mammography

October 25, 2014

The Francine's Friends Mobile has been serving our community since 2005 and has aided in providing early detection of breast cancer for women who are without health insurance. This organization has continued to grow and has been an inspiration to so many people. Here are 5 facts you probably did not know about Francine's Friends.

1. Francine's Friends was started by a group of women who lost a friend to breast cancer in 2002. They wanted to honor their friend's spirit by helping other women take control of their health and receive regular mammograms, regardless of their financial situation.

2. Every year Francine's Friends put on a "Lunch with Friends". It is hosted at the War Memorial Coliseum and raises money to cover the cost for the mammograms preformed on the coach. There is a fashion show put on by previous breast cancer survivors, along with food and other entertainment.

3. The Breast Diagnostic Center partnered with the mobile this year to create a Pink Glove Dance.  Their video won third place! The third place prize was $2,500 that was donated to the winners charity of choice. Francine's Friends has done so much for our community that this was a small way the community was able to give back.

4. During Kroger's "Fight Cancer Day" 3% of sales is donated to cancer research and programs such as Francine's Friends. There have been 36 "Fight Cancer Day" events so far and they have raised 4.7 million dollars.

"This facility is a prototype for how all breast exam facilities should be. Atmosphere is everything. This is the first exam that didn’t hurt, probably due to the relaxing atmosphere and very friendly staff. I am thankful for the care put into this facility. Very much appreciated with gracious gratitude!"
