button, Mammograms Save Lives

Description (Brief)
Pin-back buttons serve many purposes. They are efficient advertising vehicles, handy for fund-raising in support of a cause, concise statements of a person’s beliefs, a form of educational outreach, and convenient ice-breakers for conversation. This one advocates for mammograms, an x-ray procedure used to find breast tumors.
