LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Now you can "Think Pink" at the Post Office. It's all part of an effort to "stamp" out breast cancer.
The Tice branch post office celebrated breast cancer awareness month Thursday with a visit from the mobile mammogram coach.
Women received discounted mammograms on site courtesy of Radiology Regional Center.
The American Cancer Society estimates one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. That diagnosis doesn't have to be a death sentence if caught early. Survival rates for those who detect the cancer early is better than 97 percent.
The post office is also offering breast cancer awareness postage stamps through the month of October.
For every sheet of the stamps sold, a $2.20 donation goes to breast cancer research. If you buy two sheets, you'll get an inspirational pink bracelet.
