Politics has no place in health care. Breast cancer screening saves lives and hundreds of thousands of women rely on Planned Parenthood for access to care. We should be helping women access that care, not placing barriers in their way. This is why Mike Bloomberg will match every donation to the Planned Parenthood Breast Health Fund dollar-for-dollar up to $250,000.
Experts estimate that there are 225,000 new cases of breast cancer diagnosed each year. Nearly three million men, women, and teens visit Planned Parenthood health centers each year. Planned Parenthood health centers provide nearly 750,000 clinical breast exams each year.
The fund will give more women access to lifesaving care — this is what it means for women and men to stand with Planned Parenthood health centers and those they serve. Every dollar you donate now will go twice as far to help Planned Parenthood health centers provide breast health education, screenings, and referrals for mammograms to women who very often have nowhere else to turn.
