We extend our gratitude to Miracle Match for Life for its recent mobile mammography van site sponsorship that provided more than 30 women with free clinical breast exams and mammograms!
Miracle Match for Life is a collaborative effort founded in 2002 by BASF TOTAL Petrochemicals and Total Port Arthur Refinery which furthers critical healthcare services throughout the region.
This synergistic partnership strives to educate and heighten awareness for bone marrow and blood donations, cancer screenings and cancer prevention in Southeast Texas, with a special emphasis on at-risk African-American, Native American and Hispanic communities.
Since 2003, the Gift of Life, Gulf Coast Marrow Donor Program and LifeShare Blood Centers have annually benefited from the proceeds of the Miracle Match for Life golf tournament. This financial impact has helped the Gift of Life make available nearly 1,100 free mammograms for medically underserved Southeast Texas women, extending the lives of eleven individuals who were diagnosed with breast cancer and navigated into treatment. In addition, MMFL has contributed to thousands of free Gift of Life prostate cancer screenings, helping extend the lives of 77 men.
