Portland Car Donations: You Can Help Increase Survival Rates of Breast Cancer Patients
What is Breast Cancer and How Does This Affect Your Community?
Breast Cancer is a life-threatening disease in which malignant cancer cells multiply in the breast. A person can be predisposed to breast cancer if he has a genetic abnormality that was inherited from a parent or a genetic abnormality that happens as a result of the normal aging process.
U.S. breast cancer statistics show that 12 percent of American women will be diagnosed with this disease within their lifetimes. To illustrate this further, in the U.S. a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every two minutes and one woman dies from it every 13 minutes. This makes breast cancer the second leading cause of cancer death among women across the nation.
The fact of the matter is that breast cancer chooses no one. It would unfortunately and eventually affect a number of the 294,565 women in Portland. However, there is a way to mitigate, if not eliminate, its devastating effects.
Who We Are and What We Can Do to Help
We at Breast Cancer Car Donations manage car donation programs, such as our Portland car donations program, on behalf of certified 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations so that they can focus on running their programs that are directed towards breast cancer prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, and cure. We’re proud of our partnership with:
- American Breast Cancer Foundation (ABCF)
ABCF seeks to provide education, medical access, and financial assistance to the uninsured and underserved people who are battling breast cancer across the United States. Its link and referral systems allow breast cancer patients free access to local resources, services, and information that are ethnically and linguistically appropriate to the needs of these individuals. Its mission is to reduce disparities in access to breast cancer diagnosis and treatment particularly among the poor.
- Women Involved in Nurturing, Giving, Sharing, Inc. (WINGS)
WINGS provides breast cancer treatment including surgery, oncology services, hospital fees, outpatient medications and other services, as needed. The people behind WINGS aim to fill the vacuum that exists between detection and treatment. Beyond treatment, WINGS is dedicated to raising breast cancer awareness and outreach.
When you make Portland car donations, you can be confident that the proceeds of your vehicle’s sale would be used to fund programs that provide accessible and comprehensive breast health services that would exclusively benefit the people of Portland, Oregon. Your donation would help nonprofits to improve their existing prevention strategies and develop better treatment modalities. In other words, you can help increase the survival rates of those who are affected by breast cancer in your city when you donate that useless clunker of yours that you’ve been holding on to for quite some time now.
