What is a Pink Potluck?
A Pink Potluck is a fun event that can save lives. It is an opportunity for women to talk with other women about the importance of screenings and early detection of breast and cervical cancer. Illinois kicked off the first Pink Potlucks by inviting women in congregations and community groups across the state to host the events. Just like a regular potluck, everyone coming to the event brings a healthy dish or dessert to share. We then provide the information you need to know about getting screened for breast and cervical cancer.
Why Hold a Pink Potluck?
Women listen to their friends. That is why a Pink Potluck is the best way to get the word out about the importance of getting screened early for breast and cervical cancer. When it comes to breast and cervical cancer, early detection is the key to survival. According to the American Cancer Society, the five-year survival rate for breast cancer is 98 percent when it is detected early. Cervical cancer is also treatable if detected early. Women need to know that the Illinois Breast and Cervical Cancer Program provides free screenings and low-cost treatment to all uninsured women. What better way to save lives and have fun than to gather a group of women for breakfast, lunch or dinner and empower them to stay healthy!
