Fujifilm is committed to raising awareness of the life-saving importance of mammography. Mammograms remain the best screening method for detecting breast cancer early when it is most treatable. Statistics show that for everyone 1 million mammograms, 1,000 lives could be saved. Fujifilm’s Images of Health: Mammograms for a Million Moms initiative, promoted in the “How Mammograms Saves Lives” brochure, encourages women and their families to make on-line pledges to get mammograms by going to www.imagesofhealth.com. This web site also includes valuable resources such as a mammography facility locator, a video on what to expect during a mammogram, and an area for women to share their personal stories.
