The Pink Ribbon Project
Free Mammogram Program
Mammograms are an important part of breast health and help to detect breast cancer early – when it is most treatable.
The Pink Ribbon Project provides patients in southeastern North Carolina access to 3D mammography screenings, comfort to those undergoing cancer treatment and community awareness of breast cancer and the benefits of early diagnosis and screenings. The Pink Ribbon Project funds more than 1,000 screening and diagnostic breast procedures each year for eligible patients.
More than $2.1 million has been raised and over 7,400 comfort bags have been given to area women since 1998 - all possible through Pink Ribbon events, community partnerships and donations.
The Pink Ribbon Project not only hosts annual events, but is celebrated throughout the year by friends, businesses, schools, social clubs and service organizations - all of whom host fundraising events to benefit cancer services at New Hanover Regional Medical Center.
The Pink Ribbon Project is highlighted by an annual luncheon in October with more than 600 guests, followed by an evening Cocktail Party with over 400 people in attendance. Sponsorships and general admission tickets are available for both events.
If you are interested in hosting your own event to benefit The Pink Ribbon Project, contact NHRMC Foundation for more information.

The Pink Ribbon Project will be honoring Christy Brown at the event as this year's Pink Ribbon Project Champion. "Cancer was such a part of my life growing up that I wasn't surprised when genetic testing confirmed that I was positive for the BRCA1 mutation. I knew that for me, the best chance to defeat cancer meant multiple surgeries. My hope is that by sharing my story it will encourage others to understand their risk and get the help they need." - Christy Brown
