Here's the web site! Pass it along to people you know.
AGAIN, PLEASE TELL 10 FRIENDS TO TELL 10 TODAY
Analysis: Except for the part where it says, "The Breast Cancer Site is having trouble getting enough people to click on it daily," this dated email flier (circulating since 2001) remains basically true. In 2002 alone, the website and its advertisers funded a total of 1,624 free mammograms for underprivileged women, thanks to the daily clicks of visitors.
The Breast Cancer Site has been reviewed by health advocacy groups and various media outlets, and recommended by sources like Ms. Magazine. It's worth a visit.
