Women inCourage

a mes­sage from our chair:

It has been over 6 months since Women InCour­age last met.
I just want­ed to send out a let­ter to let you know that
through the pan­dem­ic, the smoke, the zoom calls, we are…still here. 

Last year we achieved

# of Active mem­bers in 2019$ Back to IMH since 2017# of Projects fund­ed since 2017

We have a new goal and project for our group for the com­ing year. With this in mind, as chair, I have sug­gest­ed we move to select one project to fund mov­ing for­ward, as many events do. The one wait­ing, which suits us to a tee, is the pro­vi­sion of mam­mo­grams for women who can­not afford them. This is an area that touch­es us all.

Women inCour­age is an inspired group of women com­mit­ted to think­ing big about the future of health­care in Laramie, Wyoming. Qual­i­ty health­care helps com­mu­ni­ties thrive. Mem­bers of Women inCour­age sup­port a fund­ing cir­cle that gath­ers quar­ter­ly at var­i­ous loca­tions through­out Laramie. Dur­ing quar­ter­ly events, we dis­cuss new ideas, inno­va­tions, prod­ucts, pro­grams, ser­vices, or oth­er ideas for the bet­ter­ment of women and the com­mu­ni­ty. We ask our mem­bers to donate with a $600 mem­ber­ship (rough­ly the cost of one mam­mo­gram) or what you can give to join. Mem­ber­ship to Women InCour­age is impor­tant as it bring a mes­sage of hope and uni­ty to each oth­er and the com­mu­ni­ty. By pro­vid­ing these mam­mo­grams using our up to date tech­nol­o­gy and 3D imag­ing with the Dig­i­tal Breast Tomog­ra­phy, women can receive life­sav­ing care. Women InCour­age inspires, encour­ages, and uplifts the women in our community. 

What hit me the most was the courage we all have to call and the make appoint­ment, the courage to go in and have that mam­mo­gram done, the courage to wait for the results, and then the courage to deal with what­ev­er the results may be. We are Women InCour­age. Be a part of this amaz­ing group that can help change lives.
