Educating the community about cancer prevention and early detection is vital to the health of our residents. With free education and cancer screenings, lives can be saved with early detection. In 2016, the Harold & Carole Pump Foundation Outreach Program attended 83 community events and educated more than 7,783 people on cancer awareness. Education was provided in both English and Spanish.
Thanks to the generosity of the Harold & Carole Pump Foundation, the Carole Pump Women’s Center hosted 12 FREE health fairs for the uninsured and underinsured in our community. “Reaching Out Health Fairs” attracts hundreds of people who receive free breast and prostate evaluations and screenings. Since prevention is key, attendees also learn how to decrease their chances of a cancer diagnosis. In 2016, the Harold & Carole Pump Foundation provided 679 people with the following FREE health screenings:
• 411 Mammograms
• 56 Diagnostic Mammograms
• 107 Ultrasounds
• 18 Ultrasound Needle Placement
• 18 Biopsies
• 69 Followup Consultations
