History of Soroptimist’s BCA BREAST CANCER DETECTION Fund Luncheon
Soroptimist’s first Breast Cancer Awareness event in Redding was held in October 1998,with a symposium that included informational booths where local doctors distributed information about breast cancer and the importance of early detection through mammogram screening. This event was sponsored by Soroptimist International (SI) of Shasta-Cascade. The following year, the event developed into a speaker’s luncheon to raise revenue for the Mammogram Fund. In 2003, SI Shasta Cascade merged with SI Redding and the annual event was continued under it’s umbrella to the present day.
Initially, the Mammogram Fund targeted women 40 years and older who lacked insurance and could not afford the breast cancer screening. The program has since expanded other breast cancer detection services.
Anyone, woman or man, needing breast cancer detections services may contact us.
