Saving Lives in Southeast Texas

Since 1994, the Gift of Life Program has helped extend the lives of more than 275 medically underserved women and men by providing free mammograms and prostate cancer screenings. In addition to these critical healthcare services, the organization also offers Southeast Texans extensive educational outreach programming that focuses on cancer awareness and prevention, and regional anti-tobacco initiatives that discourage tobacco use and support tobacco cessation.

As a local nonprofit organization, the Gift of Life relies on the support of community businesses and individuals.
