Cancer Schmancer Movement
1 in every 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer in her lifetime. Yet, there’s still no cure for cancer. Fran Drescher and millions of women across the US are leading the Cancer Schmancer Movement to spin cancer on its head by transforming from patients, which implies passivity, into medical consumers. By empowering ourselves and the women we love to listen to our bodies, ask the right questions of our doctors, and seek second opinions, we can prevent cancer and, if we still end up with it, detect cancer in its earliest stages. By joining the Cancer Schmancer Movement, you can play your part in revolutionizing women’s health history in one of three simple ways: Educate, advocate, or donate. The daughters of tomorrow will thank us, the visionaries of today, for a world where women and their families can life long and healthy lives, cancer-free!
Inner Images is committed to providing accessible and affordable mobile mammography services to women throughout the state of California by providing the highest quality of care.
