What happens when a desert rat moves out of the desert? Life, the universe, and everything! The way I see it and take it all in, anyway.

Organization spotlight: Ruta Pink
Today's blog post will feature a breast cancer prevention organization in Puerto Rico called Ruta Pink. Here is some info: Last year, Doral Bank in Puerto Rico teamed up with Susan G Komen for the Cure and launched “Ruta Pink” (or Pink Route). Ruta Pink consists of a pink mobile mammogram clinic that stops through various towns in Puerto Rico, offering women (and men) free mammograms, biopsies and referrals – with or without health insurance.
Since launching in June of 2008, Ruta Pink’s medical team has performed over 2,200 mammograms. In addition to offering mammograms, the Ruta Pink program also offers free cancer prevention seminars to the general public, and offers contributions to the Susan G Komen foundation.
