Our Smarty partners at Charlotte Radiology are the PINK headquarters as we head into October for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Their newest debut is the new 3-D Mammography and of course, their convenient Mobile Mammography Unit. In typical Charlotte Radiology fashion, they have teamed up with businesses all over Charlotte to paint this town pink!
Charlotte Radiology Breast Centers are sponsoring several local fundraisers and events throughout the month, in their 7th consecutive year of the October “1-in-8″ breast cancer awareness campaign. A portion of the proceeds from all of these events will benefit Carolinas Breast Cancer Fund, a Levine Cancer Institute initiative. Donations will aid the organization in providing Free Mammography Day in targeted underserved populations.
Mark your calendars, Smarties and hit these awesome pink events all in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
