We are here we are at the St. Vincent's Comprehensive Cancer Center. It's our third screening here at St. Vincent's Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Cancer Vixen Fund, funds free mammogram for the uninsured and under insured. I was one them, when I was diagnosed with a breast cancer. The reason this is important is, because if you are diagnosed with breast cancer and you are uninsured, you have 60% greater chance of dying from the disease. So, we are here. So, women out there don't have to be one of the 60%. So we are here saving lives and also we have some snacks, which I will show you later. But the rooms are occupied, we are scheduling people later on the week and we are really excited and this is an initiative. We plan on raising a lot of money for it and continuing. We are going to be doing it twice a week and we are totally excited and I am Marisa Acocella Marchetto by the way, I wrote 'Cancer Vixen' and I am the coach here and the founder. Thank you very much and we will be seeing more of you, we are going to be seeing more of us shortly. Thank you.
