Worship in Pink Toolkit 2020

COVID-19 may keep us from gathering together but it doesn’t keep us from our mission. This year’s toolkit includes the current information  about the virus and breast cancer. Please share it as much as possible.

About COVID-19 and breast cancer screening

Susan G. Komen recommends that healthy women of average risk delay routine breast cancer screening until later this year. Anyone who is displaying warning signs for breast cancer should contact their health provider to determine their need for diagnostic imaging.  This recommendation is to minimize exposure to and potential spreading of COVID-19 and to help support the health care system’s need to focus scarce health care capacity and resources on managing the pandemic and those most in need of support.
