Here's the Memo, Get Your Mammo!

Introducing the Here's the Memo, Get Your Mammo campaign! Thanks to the generosity and collaboration of the Highmark West Virginia Charitable Fund for Health, we have launched a statewide public awareness campaign titled “Here’s the Memo, Get your Mammo.” Throughout this campaign, we will be working together with other statewide organizations such as the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program and the James "Tiger" Morton Catastrophic Illness Commission to highlight the importance of breast health screenings through attention-grabbing broadcasts across radio, TV, billboards, and more. Along with media broadcasts, our Survivor Champions will be attending various events across the state to sign individuals up for free mammograms, give away prizes, and offer crucial breast health information and resources!

Keep an ear out for our media messages and an eye out for our events! You never know when we may be in a neighborhood near you, and we want to see you there! 

Oh, and remember to share your social media posts with us by using #heresthememogetyourmammo
