Mammograms Save Lives

The Witness Project of Connecticut has a goal to continue to make a difference in the number of women diagnosed with later stages of breast cancer. At the Witness Project we assist women in getting mammograms FREE of charge and are able to do so because of grants and individual donations. We do not want to turn away any woman away, so we need your support to keep our doors open for next year!

Please consider making a donation, so we can continue to help women for no charge.
