Hello

Why Should You Donate?

Your donation can do much more than save one life. You can save a family!


In 1940, 1-in-5,000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States. In 2017, it was 1-in-7. Everyone knows someone who has breast cancer, has had breast cancer, or has died from breast cancer. The disease has reached epidemic proportions. 

 

In the past, the majority of women developed breast cancer because of their genetics. Not so today. Thousands of women are diagnosed annually with no history of breast cancer anywhere in their family tree.

We believe that the best way to stop this epidemic is through prevention. A mammogram or thermogram is the first step in this prevention process. However, it has been estimated that close to sixty percent of women in the US have never had a mammogram or thermogram! We are committed to changing that sad fact.


While there are many reasons for this such as fear, ignorance, or a busy schedule, the main reason is financial. Many women cannot afford the $200 it takes for the checkup and do not have insurance to cover the cost. So, they go without. And as a result, close to 40,000 women will die in this country this year. How many of these deaths could be prevented if these women had been able to afford a mammogram or thermogram? Thousands, no doubt.


Your donation toward a mammogram or thermogram can do much more than save one life. You can save a family. When a mother perishes from breast cancer, she leaves behind a devasted family; children with no mother, a husband who is forced to now pick up the broken pieces and raise the family alone. So many others are forever damaged with the passing of just one life.


How Much of Your Donation Goes Toward Mammograms and Thermograms?


95% of every dollar is the highest percentage of any Foundation

We guarantee that .95 of every dollar given to the Becky Baker Foundation will go toward a mammogram or thermogram. Our Founder, Rick Baker, d an annual salary of $1.00. While we have a few others on staff with a salary greater than a dollar, the FDN is a labor of love with many volunteers generously giving of their time and talents to help save as many women as possible. We don’t hide unnecessary expenses in our “Programs Costs” as others do. We are completely transparent with every dollar received. Further, if you designate your donation of $200 to a specific individual, or to honor a loved one who has passed, every penny of your donation will go toward a mammogram, or thermogram, as specified.
