Pink Plate for Breast Cancer - 5 Survivors Lead Unique Awareness Campaign


Health





As readers know, this blog is an advocate of Breast Cancer Awareness month which takes place every October. And early breast cancer detection saves lives. So, I wanted to get a head start sharing with you about a worthwhile campaign intended to build broader public awareness and support. Introducing Pink Plate, one of the newest license plates California drivers can purchase, which aims to educate and promote the cause as well as raise badly needed funds for Breast Cancer education, especially here in the Golden State.




The California Pink Plate Campaign was created by five amazing and courageous women who are all California breast cancer survivors ranging in age from 25-57 including Chere Rush, Heather McCullough, Deborah Bordeau, Carla Kimball, and Heather Solari.  To get this campaign moving forward and making a difference they need to generate at least 7500 pre-orders of the new Pink Plate. 

All funds generated from sales of the California Pink Ribbon License Plate will be deposited into the Breast Cancer Control Account, which funds the Every Woman Counts (EWC) program. EWC is administered by the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) and provides free clinical breast exams and mammograms to California’s underserved women. 

About Pink Plate
Get more information about the movement at PinkPlate.org. Not a California resident but know someone who is? Visit the organization's site and  you can even give someone special a California Pink Ribbon Plate as a gift. Hope you'll join MommyBlogExpert and let's #PaintTheRoadsPink together!

This is such a wonderful campaign! I had no idea there was anything like this-can't think of a better way to support breast cancer screenings for those who need them!

Awareness for cancer is a great cause, getting some good research out of it is even better!

I lost a cousin to breast cancer. I'm always so happy when I see survivors!

I wish they would start a program like this in Texas. We're even that much more married to our cars here. What a good way to help fund a great cause.

What a great campaign for a worthy cause. If I lived in California, I'd definitely be signing up for one.

They should start something like this in every state. I think it's great that California is doing something like this to raise funds for Breast Cancer support
