Through the generous support of Flint Hills Resources in Port Arthur, 34 medically underserved women received free Gift of Life clinical breast exams and mammograms at the Lakeside Palomar Community Center in Port Arthur on June 23rd.

Flint Hills Resources has sponsored numerous Gift of Life events and initiatives in support of the organization’s mission of saving lives through cancer awareness and screenings throughout seven Southeast Texas counties.  In 2014, Flint Hills Resources extended its support by sponsoring a UTMB mobile mammography van site, which is a critical tool used to address the health disparities prevalent in our region.

Last year, Gift of Life client, Marie Brocks, attended her first mobile mammography van site and expressed appreciation to Flint Hills Resources for their sponsorship, which provided her with invaluable peace of mind.

“My older sister and grandmother had breast cancer, so I know that I am at risk,” Brocks said. “I wanted to make sure everything was okay. I appreciate Flint Hills Resources for sponsoring the van site because I do not have insurance. This is a big help!”

This effort includes financial support for many programs that help educate and enrich children, preserve natural resources, or simply to offer a hand to those in need. Many of these programs also benefit from direct involvement by the company’s employees, who contribute their time and talents toward service projects. Flint Hills Resources is making a remarkable difference in the lives of Southeast Texans.
