Pink Ribbon Angels
A Free Mammogram & Biopsy Program
Pink Ribbon Angels was formed in 2009 to help residents of the Wickenburg area cover uninsured expenses associated with the diagnosis of breast cancer.
To date, the Pink Ribbon Angels have funded more than 2,500 free mammograms and diagnostic tests, and more than 400 free screenings for women and men ages 35 to 64.
Program funding is provided by individual donations, grants and the Annual October Wickenburg Walks to Boot Breast Cancer sponsored by the Wickenburg Breast Cancer Network. Donations are tax-deductible and can be made online or mailed to:
