PINK DRIVE aims to:
- provide affordable, convenient mammography services to women in the private and corporate sectors;
- provide free scanning and education to disadvantaged communities via local clinics, community health centres and specified hospitals with no oncology facilities.
In May 2011 PinkDrive and their mobile education truck came into KZN for Commrades Marathon. Through extensive negotiations I managed to secure their team to assist with educating the health care workers in the Inanda Valley about breast self examination. There were 120 women that attended to the two sessions and through word of mouth within their communities we feel that over 650 women would be educated indirectly from this event. Outreach work is both exciting and sobering, when you realise the huge need for education and skills.
Dr Ness Inc. supplies Pink Drive with gently used bras collected during the year, so that rural ladies can benefit from bras to hold their softies.
