What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Mammogram Poster Girls; saving lives one mammogram at a time.

The Mammogram Poster Girls have created two programs to provide 3D screening mammograms in medically underserved areas, free of charge to under/uninsured patients in need.
Two-Fer Tuesdays (TFT) -get a mammogram, get a meal. and MPG Mondays. The organization coordinates with mobile mammography units, and local imaging centers, to provide mammograms (and meals) in medically underserved communities in the southern sector of the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex--where the demographic has a higher rate of women and men of color and lower socio-economic status. Women in the southern sector are 1.4 times more likely to receive a late-stage breast cancer diagnosis, and 1.2 times more like to die of breast cancer (Komen study 2015/2018). Mammograms are provided by Methodist Health System Imaging and Mobile Mammography Unit, scheduled, coordinated, managed, and funded by Mammogram Poster Girls.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To provide screening and diagnostic mammograms to 500 patients per year.

Funds raised by Mammogram Poster Girls, Inc. may be used for the following:

Screening mammograms (including 3D mammograms); for insured and uninsured patients in need.
Diagnostic mammograms; for insured and uninsured patients in need.
Breast ultrasound procedures; for insured and uninsured patients in need.
Breast biopsy procedures; for insured and uninsured patients in need.

Other breast cancer early detection programs may be funded by special request.

The Mammogram Poster Girls raise money through fund & awareness-raising events throughout the year. Our strategic plan will add a Poster Girls Partners program--an additional funding stream.
Funds raised allow the organization to provide screening and diagnostic mammograms for those unable to afford them. Mammograms are provided, free of charge to the patients, in partnership with hospitals and imaging centers via program initiatives such as Two-Fer Tuesdays (get a mammogram, get a meal) and MPG Mondays. These programs were created to remove barriers to access. Two-Fer Tuesday events provide free mammograms to women in their neighborhoods--the Mammogram Poster Girls schedule monthly events which take a mobile mammography unit to the patients in medically underserved neighborhoods, providing each patient with a meal and a mammogram. MPG Mondays are partnerships with local hospitals providing free mammograms the first and third Monday of each month for under/uninsured patients.

Each year the Mammogram Poster Girls hold three fund-raising events, Shop Eat Drink PINK!, Shoot 4 Hoots, and a Sweetheart Supper. The organization is also actively pursuing grant and foundation funding to meet the ever-expanding need for breast cancer early detection services for under and uninsured patients. Our strategic plan adds a new funding program, Poster Girls Partners, to our revenue stream. These partnerships will raise funds for the organization via co-branding initiatives developed with retail and restaurant partners. The Partnerships will have the added benefit of raising awareness of the organization and the mission. Saving lives...one mammogram at a time.
Since the founding of the Mammogram Poster Girls in 2018, the organization has helped more than 800 women gain access to screening mammograms, diagnostic mammograms, ultrasounds, and biopsy procedures.
The demand continues to grow, and the Mammogram Poster Girls will continue to create new fundraising avenues as well as new early detection programs to meet the growing need.

In the first three years of existence, the Mammogram Poster Girls have raised over $400, 000.00. These monies have allowed the organization to help over 800 patients gain access to live-saving screening and diagnostic mammograms.
