Support Free Mamograms and Prevent Breast Cancer

A favor to ask, it only takes a minute….

Please tell ten friends to tell ten today! The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on the pink box located on the top right side, that says ¬†” Click Here To Give… It’s Free”.

This doesn’t cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammogram in exchange for advertising.

Here’s the web site! Pass it along to people you know.

AGAIN , PLEASE TELL 10 FRIENDS TO TELL 10

I want to thank you so much for taking your time to do this. You will help save a life.

This is a story from a special lady who shares her experiences in choosing a wig.

Here is one excerpt;

My Most Embarassing Wig Moment:

I’m not very tall, and I was walking through a crowd at a party. Some of the taller people in the crowd squeezed their way past me and wooosh! my wig almost got dragged away with them. Fortunately, my friends were fast and rushed over to literally smack my wig back down on my head.

The ACS has also teamed with the Entertainment Industry Foundation to distribute free wigs donated by the Pantene Pro-V Beautiful Lengths campaign. Relying on ponytail donations from women across the country, the campaign creates the wigs and distributes them to ACS wig banks located across the country.
