Positively Pink (charity no G92860477) the registered Breast Cancer charity based in Mijas Costa is pleased to announce that they are funding a programme of free breast screening again this summer for all British women over the age of 18.
Positively Pink is dedicated to education and early detection and the free screening programme ensures that all British women have access to breast screening regardless.
Breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. It is also one of the most treatable if detected earlier enough. The lifetime risk of developing breast cancer is one in nine. 44,000 women were diagnosed in the UK alone last year.
Lorraine Palmer the founder of the charity believes that “early detection is your protection”
Lorraine works tirelessly to ensure that she raises adequate funding so she is able to help as many British women here on the Coast as she can. The main fund raising event is the “Pink Ball” held every October at the fabulous El Oceano Hotel. This year the sponsors of the screening programme are asking all women who take advantage of this Free service to make a donation of the cost of their last bra. A small price to pay for peace of mind
Lorraine Palmer the founder of Positively Pink believes that “early detection is your best protection. Last year Positively Pink screened 513 women living on the Costa del Sol and helped to save the life of one lady who received a positive diagnosis.
This year’s campaign will begin on the 19th June and appointments will be available every Tuesday afternoon at Clinica Medicare in La Cala de Mijas. Due to the current economic climate and the impact on fundraising and donations, we are limited to only being able to offer 400 screenings during the 2012 campaign. For more information or to book an appointment please call 952 835 776.

“Last year Positively Pink funded the screening of nearly 1000 British women here on the Costa del Sol, this screening programme helped to save 6 womens lives. It is our intention to screen a similar amount again this year”, Lorraine says.
