ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Women's health is especially important, particularly breast health as it relates to breast cancer.  Unfortunately, tests such as mammograms can be pricey, and those without insurance or are under-insured have a difficult time affording the appropriate tests.  With "Power of the Pink," these formerly expensive tests are free.

“Power of the Pink” is a local women’s health program working to provide free mammograms to the uninsured or under-insured women across Missouri. Throughout the month of May, the Mammogram Bus will be at area Wal-Marts providing this free service.

Founder of "Power of the Pink" Sherri Cliffe, Rhonda Roberts from Wal-Mart and Theresa Taylor from MoBap’s Breast Health Center join us for more information on local breast health initiatives.
