"Thank you all for the generous help finding a no-cost mammogram for my niece - when her health insurance wouldn't pay for it.
We were lucky, I'm paying it forward" - Lin

"I went in for my regular mammogram as usual and at 39, they called me back to come in and take a biopsy and yes, it was malignant and I had stage 1 breast cancer. But early detection saved my life. Now I am a 5 year and counting survivor, I work as a research consultant , researching breast cancer, and I volunteer." - Lisa

"A couple of days later, a nurse from the Women's Health Center called and said, "We have you scheduled for a mammogram, and it is paid for." When I asked how, she said through a grant from Susan G. Komen. That mammogram saved my life, as they found more spots in the other breast." - Jessica
