Mid-Ohio Valley In The Pink wants to make a positive impact on the lives of those affected by breast cancer. We want to increase public awareness about breast health, the importance of early breast cancer detection and screening. We also want to honor breast cancer survivors, and remember the loved ones that fought a battle and lost. Through our Breast Cancer Run/Walk Rally, MOV In The Pink hopes to be able to give every woman who is uninsured or underinsured vital information about a program that will help pay for diagnostic and treatment services for mammograms, and cerivical cancer screening based on their eligibility.
ABOUT MID-OHIO VALLEY IN THE PINK
When it comes to fighting breast cancer, there is strength in numbers. Joan Parsons decided to build on those numbers by forming Mid-Ohio Valley In The Pink a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in June 2009. Its purpose is to bring the cities and residents of Parkersburg, Vienna, Williamstown, WV, Belpre, and Marietta, OH, together as a whole, to raise awareness about the importance of breast health. There are a lot of women in the Mid Ohio Valley that can't afford to get mammograms or cervical cancer screening done because they have no insurance or insurance won't pay for these tests. Our goal is to make sure women get vital information about a local program that can help them get these tests. We need to take steps now to try and prevent breast cancer before its to late. By giving women this information, we hope to give them a head start on preventing breast cancer. Early detection is the key and when women can't afford these tests, precious lives are lost. With the valley's help many lives will be changed for the better.
