Right Response and its parent company First Aid Only are committed to community health and social responsibility. Breast cancer affects tens of thousands of women each year and early detection significantly increases the chances of surviving.
We believe that research can lead to better detection and improved treatments in the fight against breast cancer. That's why a portion of the profits from sales of all First Aid for Life kits are donated to breast cancer research and to provide early breast cancer detection to those in need.
The research efforts supported by Right Response include work done by the Kearney Breast Center at the Peace Health Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver, Wash.
The Center provides a full range of services for breast health, including early detection, advanced imaging services, surgery, cancer care, breast reconstruction and education.
Through the donations from First Aid Only, the Center now offers a Hologic Dimension mammogram unit featuring 3-D technology. It is the first of its kind in the Portland, Ore. metropolitan area.
The new 3-D technology provides more accurate breast imaging to improve early detection and reduce unnecessary follow-up diganostic procedures such as biopsies. The 3-D technology for mammograms was approved by the FDA in early 2011.
