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, breast screenings and breast cancer. Please share it as much as possible. Scroll down for additional materials.

SPECIAL TOPIC: A Perfect Storm: Highlighting Breast Cancer Disparities Among African-American Women

About COVID-19 and breast cancer screening

Due to limits on resources and staff and to minimize exposure to COVID-19, many hospitals and imaging centers postponed screening mammograms for some women. Now, many places have begun offering screening mammograms again. If you’re due for a screening, call to make an appointment.

Hospitals and imaging centers are taking many precautions to ensure patients are safe. Many places have made changes to allow for social distancing. For example, they have spread out appointments so only a few people are in the waiting area at the same time.

If you’re at average risk and have no signs of breast cancer and have had a mammogram in the past year or so, don’t worry if your mammogram is postponed for a short period of time. You should be able to reschedule your mammogram soon.
