SUN COAST DONATES TO THE ROSE

Sun Coast Resources donates $7680 to the Rose Breast Cancer organization.

During the month of October, Sun Coast raised donations for The Rose in support of breast cancer awareness. Through the contributions of our employees and the Sun Coast donation matching program, we were able to donate $7,680 this year!

The Rose, is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) breast cancer organization, offering a full range of breast cancer screening and diagnostic services including mammograms, ultrasounds, biopsies and access to treatment. This past year, The Rose served 36,482 patients with 7,500 of those being uninsured and sponsored. A total of 68,377 screening and diagnostic procedures were provided, 16,708 were sponsored. Recognizing that with breast cancer, early detection can often mean saving lives, The Rose also provides breast health awareness within the community. In 2014-15 a total of 15,000 educational or outreach contacts were made.

Their mission is to reduce deaths from breast cancer by providing screening, diagnostics and access to treatment for all women regardless of their ability to pay. In addition, the goal is to provide early detection and to reduce the time between initial screening and treatment as well as to create new clinical pathways for the uninsured.
