Project Detect gained 501(c)3 status in March 2012. Our mission is to provide early detection screenings for uninsured and underinsured women and men who are at risk of cancer in the Greater Charlotte County Florida area.
"Fulfilling Our Mission"
Project Detect was initiated in 2005 by the Riverwood Ladies Golf Association (RLGA) with the goal of helping local uninsured and underinsured women receive mammograms.
Since its inception, Project Detect has raised over $342,000.00 and 100% of the funds donated were used to provide mammograms and diagnostics for uninsured and underinsured women and men in our local community.
In the past several years, Project Detect has provided hundreds of mammograms with further testing performed for each abnormal result. Those who had a positive diagnosis were referred for further treatment. Project Detect also help men with early detection cancer screenings.
Our goal is to expand our focus to include early detection screenings for other types of cancer as well.
