Paint Nevada Pink
Join us as we #PaintNevadaPink to celebrate and promote breast cancer screening across our state and fund breast cancer screening and support for women in Nevada who otherwise wouldn’t be screened. Why? Because #MammogramsSaveLives.
We're kicking off the month with events October 2 in Reno beneath the Reno Arch and in Las Vegas.
Stay tuned for details!
Paint Nevada Pink also celebrates the collaboration of healthcare partners from across Nevada who have come together in support of a unified breast cancer screening recommendation. In healthcare, that’s a bold and exciting move. In Nevada, it just makes sense.

DONATE TO SUPPORT NEVADANS
Breast Cancer Screening for All Nevadans is In Reach
We encourage you to make a donation in memory of a loved one or to celebrate survivorship, a special occasion or simply to recognize their courage to fight breast cancer.
Screening for Uninsured & Underinsured
We will be using the money raised for those Nevadans who need help paying for screening and any other services they need to overcome barriers to screening.
We'll continue to educate Nevadans about the importance of cancer early detection to find cancer early, when it's most treatable.
