Breast Cancer Awareness

Many of us have loved ones who have been affected by breast cancer.

Early detection through screenings and mammograms can save lives. That is why I am supporting the Pink Plate Breast Cancer Awareness program to provide low-income women with easy access to screenings.

The state legislature and Governor enacted Assembly Bill 49, which authorized a specialty license plate to fund California's Every Woman Counts Program and raise awareness about early detection. The program provides screenings, mammograms and other services to low-income women throughout the state. Visit the Every Woman Counts website to learn how they can help.

You can order the plate for yourself or give one as a gift. Part of the cost is tax-deductible. Remember to "think pink" and help spread the word about the plate.
