Paint Austin Pink is an education and outreach initiative, and partnership between Loretto Hospital and local businesses, to raise awareness about breast cancer, its impact on women from our community and the importance of early detection. Through Paint Austin Pink our goal is to increase the mammography screening rates among women in the community as well as bring attention to the huge disparities in breast cancer deaths on the westside of Chicago. Paint Austin Pink will run concurrently with Loretto Hospital $50 mammogram program
