MEMO volunteers have built a second mobile breast screening clinic in Thunder Bay which is now ready to ship to Cuba to begin saving women’s lives!
THIS IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO SAVE THE LIFE OF A WOMAN WITH BREAST CANCER IN CUBA!
If you were a woman in Cuba with breast cancer you would have virtually no chance of early diagnosis by mammography even though it could reduce the chances of you dying by up to 95%.
That is unless you lived in the Municipality of Placetas, in Villa Clara where MEMO Cuba has built it’s second mobile mammography clinic. Each year this outreach to Cuban women 50 yrs to 65 yrs of age is saving the lives of up to 80 women from a horrible death by breast cancer.
A small group of dedicated volunteers in Thunder Bay have committed their time and talents to constructing the mobile clinic. Special donations of paint, signage and other materials from different vendors in the city have made this a very low cost project. Now the opportunity is for you to help out with getting this clinic to Cuba!
The cost of shipping this mobile clinic to Cuba will be $10,000 Cdn. It will cost $1.66 for each km on it’s way from Thunder Bay to Cuba. Unfortunately It is not saving any lives sitting in our warehouse in Thunder Bay.
You can be part of this amazing outreach by donating to MEMO’s next breast cancer care initiative. We need your help in getting this clinic to Cuba.
