Idaho's ranked last in the nation when it comes to breast cancer screening.
And it gets worse.
The likelihood of a woman getting diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime is 1 in 8. And, the number of men diagnosed with it is on the rise, too.
But there's good news too! If caught early, the chances of a positive outcome and a cure skyrocket.
Why aren’t more women here in Idaho getting screened until they are way past the recommended age of 40?
That's where Stampede for the Cure and you come in, partner!
We're here to raise awareness of this crucial medical milestone and help Idahoans overcome those darn obstacles gettin' in the way of screening.
How? By raising funds (over 1 million dollars so far) for free mammograms provided by our healthcare partners.
Other organizations usually take the funds we raise and distribute them elsewhere, but not us. We're all about the western lifestyle and our community. That's why the Snake River Stampede Rodeo decided to create Stampede for the Cure.
We're a separate non-profit that's closely tied to the rodeo and we're dedicated to raising funds and awareness year-round. And get this - every single dollar stays local. We use local volunteers and partner with local organizations. We won't stop rounding up dollars until the cows come home.
If you're ready to join our cause, we'd love to have you. Whether you want to volunteer, host a fundraiser, share your story, join our board, or just get more information, send us a message.
If you or someone you know is in need, please take advantage of this important program…it’s free and it saves lives. Call 208-381-2095 to contact the St. Luke’s Breast Care Services Fund Office or call 208-288-4621 to contact the Saint Alphonsus Breast Care Services Funding Office.
Stampede for the Cure is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
