Put Yourself on the List.
Women Connect is our way of educating and empowering women to do something they don't always do: prioritize their health.
Draw strength and reassurance from other women. Ask uncomfortable questions. Overcome obstacles to better health.

We hope you came away from our first event inspired to take charge of your breast health:
One in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.
- Only 67 percent of Nebraska women are getting mammograms, the most common screening test for breast cancer. The national average is 72 percent.
- Early detection can increase breast cancer survival rates by 40 percent.
If you missed or want to review our breast health Q&A, you can watch the recording here.
Impactful Giving | The power of women helping women
Your gifts during our first event sponsored a Methodist Mobile 3D Mammography visit to the Latino Center of the Midlands. On Nov. 18, more than a dozen uninsured women received potentially life-saving screenings because of you. That is the power of women helping women.
