Dear Avon BHOP Grantees,

As another year comes to an end, we want to extend our deepest appreciation for all the work you do to help underserved women access mammography screening and treatment services. While it is not an easy task and often goes unrewarded or unrecognized, please know that you are making a positive contribution to our world. Dedicated people like you, who are willing to serve the needs of the less fortunate will always fill an important role in society.

May 2013 bring you peace, health and happiness.
