Pin-A-Sister®/ Examínate Comadre®

Pin-A-Sister®/Examínate Comadre is a faith-based, breast cancer outreach and awareness initiative by ACCESS. Our mission is to educate and reduce health disparities and decrease the number of African-American and Hispanic women who develop breast cancer.

“Participants of our Pin-A-Sister/Examínate Comadre pinning ceremonies have shared that testimonies of survival from early detection encouraged them to get their annual mammogram. Participants have also mentioned that the pinning of another woman has helped hold them accountable by ensuring that they get checked."
