Gift of Life and Chevron Phillips: Saving Lives in Southeast Texas

May 11, 2016

Thanks to the extraordinary support of Chevron Phillips, nearly 40 medically underserved Southeast Texas women received free clinical breast exams and mammograms from the Gift of Life.

Chevron Phillips is a worldwide chemical corporation that believes real benefits can be gained by establishing effective relationships within the community. Encouraging organizations that promote private enterprise, health services, education and civic progression has been an investment that has paid great dividends, engendering an internationally-respected reputation founded upon the company’s loyalty and goodwill.

I know that it is crucial that I take care of my health. The opportunity to have a mammogram means the world to me. Thank you to the Gift of Life and Chevron for providing free mammograms to so many women.

Chevron has built an enduring legacy of compassion, donating funds to worthy causes and encouraging employees to make a similar positive impact. Since the company’s inception, the corporation has invested more than $15 million (and countless volunteer hours) in communities where its employees live and work.

Each year, Chevron Phillips sponsors a UTMB mobile mammography van site, which has provided nearly 200 free clinical breast exams and mammograms for medically underserved women. The company’s commitment to the Gift of Life’s prostate cancer programs has helped the organization provide primary care tests and prostate cancer treatment for medically underserved Southeast Texas men. Through this initiative, the Gift of Life has provided treatment and support for 69 men diagnosed with prostate cancer at its screenings.

Thanks to wonderful supporters like Chevron Phillips, the Gift of Life has been able to extend the lives of more than 275 Southeast Texans who have been diagnosed and treated through its efforts.
