Wake Radiology Sponsors the Komen Triangle Race for the Cure, Uses Roses to Explain Benefits of 3D Mammography
RALEIGH, April 2, 2018 — Wake Radiology, the Triangle’s leading provider of outpatient medical imaging, announces a six-week “rose pledge” campaign as the practice re-affirms its partnership with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Starting today, April 2, 2018 and continuing through May 13, 2018, Wake Radiology is using a rose to explain the difference in and benefits of having a 3D screening mammogram. Women who pledge to get a screening mammogram during the next 12 months can also enter to win a year’s worth of roses.
“We strongly believe that 3D mammogram help us detect breast cancer at the earliest possible stage,” says Dr. Danielle Wellman, director of breast services at Wake Radiology. “We took a rose and put it through both a traditional and a 3D mammogram. The resulting images make it easy to show patients the clarity and detail we can see in breast tissue when a patient has a 3D screening.”
Wake Radiology is taking its “rose” message to the Susan G. Komen Triangle Race for the Cure. The practice has partnered with the Komen Triangle race for 11 years and is proud to be the official sponsor of all teams to participate in this year’s event. In the team’s bags, women will find a postcard inviting them to take the rose pledge and see the difference between the two types of mammogram screenings.
People from across the area are invited to join with Team WakeRad and many other groups as we run and walk together on May 5, 2018 for the Triangle Race for the Cure. The Komen race will be held at The Frontier in Research Triangle Park.While there, participates are invited to stop by the Wake Radiology tent to pick up a surprise gift, learn more about 3D mammography and make the rose pledge entering them for a chance to win a monthly delivery of roses for a year.
