September is time to commit to show your support during October 2017!

One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point in their lives. This includes numerous individuals, right here in our community. We invite you to join us in raising awareness of and increasing access to breast cancer screenings.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Once again, Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic is providing pink flags for businesses and households around our community. The annual community-wide display of flags serves as a reminder to access preventive care and emphasizes the importance of, and support for, breast health and preventative screening services. The funds raised provide crucial sustainability, ensuring continuance of KBFPC programs that offer breast cancer screening services and breast health education.

Through our Community Health Outreach Program, we connect with women door-to-door and help them eliminate barriers to screening such as cost or transportation. As a provider for the Alaska Breast and Cervical Health Check program, we offer no-cost annual exams, clinical breast exams, mammograms and diagnostic services to those who qualify. Join us in promoting Project Wellness, with an emphasis on developing a life-long habit of annual screening visits. KBFPC provides these valuable services to women regardless of their ability to pay.

Partnerships with businesses and households like yours are crucial in making our local breast cancer support efforts possible. Would you join us as a sponsoring business/home?

To facilitate timely delivery and display of flags KBFPC Board Members are reaching out for commitments and payments during September. Of course, we will gladly accept contributions at anytime during October or the rest of the year!

Throughout the month of October, local businesses, organizations, and homes will display our pink flags. Each flag is a $100 tax-deductible donation that stays right here in our community. Many supporters choose to display several flags to increase awareness and sustainability of local breast cancer resources. A list of contributors will be featured through newspapers and social media. Those who donate $300 or more will be highlighted on our website and on social media. Flags will be delivered and displayed by a member of the KBFPC board or staff, and picked up in November at your convenience.
