Pink Ribbon Jax has your back… And your front, too!
We can’t thank you enough for your trust and support of Pink Ribbon Jax.
In 2020, with the Jacksonville community firmly behind us, we met our fundraising goal and kept our expense ratio extremely low (less than 2%), so more than 98 cents of every dollar raised directly funded our cause!
As a result, Baptist’s 3D Mobile Mammography “Buddy Bus” has been ordered and is expected to be in Jax the 4th quarter of 2021. The Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville continues to make strides in the arena of cutting-edge breast cancer research, including the final stage of a breast cancer vaccine. That is what your dollars funded! This is the difference you make in the lives of families fighting breast cancer in Jacksonville.
As we navigate through another year of uncertainty, three things remain certain: Breast Cancer did not shutdown during the pandemic; funding of the two hospitals PRJ’s efforts benefit – Baptist Medical Center Beaches and Mayo Clinic, Jacksonville – is vital; and our fellow Jaxsons, who have lost their jobs and health insurance, need our support more than ever.
In response to this need, our goal for 2021, our 15th Anniversary, is to fund 1,500 mammograms for uninsured women and men! Each free mammogram to the community costs, on average, $300.
Yes, our goal is aggressive: 1,500 x $300 = $450,000. That’s because we must be more relentless than this disease. Together, we will save lives by providing for those in our community with the greatest need.
