Becky's husband, Rick, launched what he has called the #Race4Prevention Tour after Becky passed away on Easter Sunday morning, 2017. One of the last things Becky said to Rick was that she was "Sad that no one would ever remember her name." Rick promised her that no one would ever "forget her name." So, he launched The Becky Baker Foundation and deposited the one-million-dollar life insurance check from Becky's policy into an account to pay for 5,000 free mammograms. He then wrapped his GTR and started driving the country. Along the way, he has distributed 70,000 pens, 2,000 shirts, and over 70,000 brochures, all with the message of free mammograms and thermograms. He drove over 34,000 miles through 37 states, making hundreds of new friends along the way. Today, the BBF has given away over 2,000 mammograms and Becky's name lives on.
