Save 20% | Save lives
Just in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, the Board of Visitors 2023 Care Card is now available for purchase online, with 100% of proceeds benefitting The Big Pink Bus, Banner MD Anderson’s new mobile 3D mammography unit. With plans to get rolling in January 2024, The Big Pink Bus will bring life-saving breast cancer screenings to women across the Valley, especially those in underserved and outlying communities.
Over the past 23 years, the Care Card has become Arizona’s largest retail fundraiser, generating nearly $4 million for local charities supporting health care for women, children, and the elderly. Here’s how it works:
- Purchase your Care Card eCard online for $60
- During the 10-day shopping period, Oct. 20-29, 2023, present your Care Card to receive a 20% discount on regular-priced merchandise at some 350 local retailers and restaurants in the greater Phoenix area, with some retailers honoring the Card Card for online purchases as well.
- 100% of Care Card sale proceeds will benefit The Big Pink Bus through the Banner Health Foundation.
Year after year, participating retailers have included popular local stores such as Lululemon, Aveda, Crate & Barrel, Evereve, Sur la Table, Nothing Bundt Cakes, locally owned boutiques, salons, and fitness studios, and restaurants including Flower Child, Grimaldi’s, Zinburger, Sandbar, The Henry, and more.
One-third of women with health insurance and more than two-thirds of those without health insurance do not get regular mammograms, often citing personal and professional obligations, the long distance to an imaging site, or lack of transportation as reasons. The Big Pink Bus will be a fully outfitted coach that brings 3D mammography—the gold standard in screening—to women where they are. 3D mammography offers greater accuracy, reducing false alarms, finding more cancers than conventional mammography, and detecting invasive cancers sooner. Women whose mammograms detect cancer will have access to Banner MD Anderson’s Multidisciplinary Breast Cancer Program that leverages integrated care across several specialties, using the latest technologies, treatments, and research. Additionally, throughout the cancer journey, patients are part of the Breast Cancer Navigation Program, where compassionate patient coordinators help guide them through the treatment process and ensure they are well-informed and supported.
