Because of earlier detection and improved treatment, death rates for women with breast cancer have steadily declined since 1990. As we all know, screening mammography can save lives. Breast cancer detected in its earliest stage increases the survival rate to 95 percent. Because of this, the Parkview Foundation is dedicating the 16th annual Cookin’ Men event to raise funds for Francine’s Friends mobile mammography program. Please join us as we support early detection, prevention, screening and management plans to fight breast cancer. Additionally, your support will focus on personalized approaches and improved care for those in need. In other words, we’re working to save lives and we need your support to make that happen.</span><br /><br /></p> 4000 Parnell Avenue Fort Wayne, IN America/Indiana/Winamac
