Proceeds from the more than 17,000 Breast Cancer Awareness license plates sold in 2011 will be used to fund 48 screening mammography programs for women in need across Indiana. The Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust (IBCAT) has awarded more than $342,000 in grants to support these programs in 2012.
Consistently a top ten selling specialty plate at the BMV, IBCAT has awarded more than $1.6 million in grants from plate sales since its inception in 2001 which have funded more than 10,000 mammograms state-wide.
Flossie Crowe of Little York, Indiana and an IBCAT grant beneficiary, tells her story of the life-saving mammogram she wouldn’t have gotten without assistance. Other highlights of the program are also featured in the video.
So keep buying the Breast Cancer Awareness plate. It’s making a difference in Indiana!
