Every October, ECMC Foundation partners with the Buffalo Bills and ADPRO Sports to raise money to support the ECMC Mobile Mammography Coach, which makes lifesaving breast cancer screening available to women throughout Western New York.
By bringing mammography to women who otherwise couldn’t access it—whether because of transportation issues, affordability, or other reasons—the coach has saved lives and brought access to housing projects, rural communities, and the neighborhood around our campus, to name just a few.
With the funds raised during the Billieve Challenge—as well as throughout the rest of the year—the coach offers lifesaving breast cancer screening, cutting-edge equipment, and a full staff of compassionate technicians.
We urge you to sign up your school or team and join us in showing all of Western New York that we BILLIEVE in fighting breast cancer by supporting the WNY Billieve Football Challenge. Thank you for your support!
The ECMC Foundation along with our partners at the Buffalo Bills, ADPRO Sports and New Era are asking you to turn WNY sports fields pink during the month of October in support of Breast Cancer Awareness and Screening. ADPRO will provide gear to turn your sidelines pink like the pro’s and in return, your team or school agrees to raise funds to support the ECMC Mobile Mammography Coach, the only unit in WNY designed to bring life-saving breast cancer screening right to women in your community!
Since ECMC Foundation’s mobile unit hit the road, thousands of women have been screened for breast cancer; several hundred were flagged for more extensive testing and in several dozen cases, women were diagnosed with breast cancer. These are women who never would have been screened, never would have been detected and never would have had the opportunity for lifesaving treatment if it had not been for the Coach. The Mobile Mammography Coach is designed to take screening services to women throughout our community who otherwise don’t have access to this type of healthcare. Your support of the WNY Billieve Challenge helps to ensure that ALL women in WNY have access to breast cancer screening.
Here’s how the WNY Billieve Football Challenge works:
