Fujifilm and the National Breast Cancer Foundation Provide Free Mammograms as Part of Images of Health Campaign
Date:5/7/2008

Mammograms for a Million Moms campaign. Launched in October 2006, the campaign is designed to raise awareness of the life-saving importance of mammography in the early detection of breast cancer, and to encourage the millions of women of screening age who have not had a mammogram to make a pledge and follow through on that pledge by getting a mammogram. The first step is awareness, and the second step is action -- both of which are promoted on http://www.imagesofhealth.com . The Web site offers women a free downloadable brochure about mammography, a video that demonstrates the mammography process, testimonials from internationally recognized mammography researchers on the importance of regular screenings and -- most importantly -- includes a facility locator so women can find a certified mammography facility in their area.

The Images of Health: Mammograms for a Million Moms campaign is also raising money for the NBCF, which provides mammograms to women in need nationwide. A portion of the sales of Fujifilm's pink QuickSnap 800 Flash One-Time-Use Camera are donated to the NBCF. To date, the NBCF has received more than $30,000 from camera sales, as well as contributions of $300,000 and two Fujifilm digital mammography systems, known as Fujifilm Computed Radiography for Mammography (FCRm).

"The Images of Health: Mammograms for a Million Moms initiative has been a tremendous success for Fujifilm in raising awareness of the importance of early detection," said Randy Nagel, Director of Corporate Communications for FUJIFILM Medical Systems USA. "We look forward to continuing our efforts to motivate women to take better care of their health and to help provide the means for them to do so."
