The Amy Foundation is so very grateful for the special individuals who are devoted to our mission. Without our numerous donors and dedicated volunteers, we could not provide greatly needed support for uninsured and underinsured women to receive early detection for breast cancer. But … the need continues.
Breast cancer remains a major and critical health issue, especially for uninsured and underinsured women in New Jersey.
New Jersey currently ranks as the 10th state in the U.S. for breast cancer incidence. Because of awareness and early screening, a woman's risk of dying of breast cancer in NJ has dropped significantly. With early detection, the survival rate for women diagnosed with breast cancer is nearly 100%.
For too many underserved women throughout our area, though, putting food on the table for their family is their main priority. Having a “selfish” procedure to detect breast cancer early is a financial burden that is not affordable.
We hope you will consider making an end-of-year holiday gift to The Amy Foundation that feels comfortable to you. A gift to The Amy Foundation will help us make early detection measures accessible to the many uninsured and underinsured women throughout our area.
