cer awareness among patients. Proceeds from the use of the distinctively pink phones are donated to the American Breast Cancer Foundation, a nonprofit organization providing early screening and diagnostic services for breast cancer nationwide for women and men in need.

"The 'Speak Pink' phone is one more vehicle to help advance breast cancer awareness and information among ethnic groups impacted by language barriers that may not have the level of awareness afforded to others," said Paula Turruchi, Vice President of Women Services for Parkland. "The staff really enjoys having easy access to the phones, and we've already received positive patient feedback from their addition."

"Parkland Memorial Hospital is now the largest participant in our 'Speak Pink' breast cancer awareness program," noted Provenzano.
