About Us

For the past twelve years, East-West Church has worked to raise funds for local organizations to support early detection of breast cancer.

For the past six years, we have exclusively committed to partnering with the WellStar Foundation, raising over $78,000 to provide free screening mammograms, diagnostic services and genetic risk assessments to women and men who lack access or are unable to afford healthcare within the WellStar Cobb service area.

Most ‘Pink Campaigns’ seem to paper over what exactly we need to be aware of.  After all, the disease itself is well known. More than 80% of breast cancer cases are discovered when the woman feels a lump and the earliest breast cancers are detected by a mammogram.

What we need to be aware of is the fact that mammograms are hard to get for many women and that for all the ‘awareness’ we see, there still isn’t a cure for Breast Cancer.  This is where you can help.

Seeing pink ribbons everywhere isn’t enough to make anyone aware of the importance of early detection. It’s time to do something  tangible to provide women with a basic test early enough to save their life!

Please join the Miles for Mammograms® Run/Walk to help fund mammograms through the WellStar Foundation.
