FAYETTEVILLE, AR - In our November Pink Courage report, a Fayetteville woman named Robin Hall stops by our studios and talks with Neile Jones. The 11-year breast cancer survivor explains why she was asked to represent Arkansas in Washington D.C. Hall says "I was asked by The Access To Medical Imaging Group to come and speak for the state of Arkansas to our local representatives to help them understand the importance of having access to medical imaging for all states especially for Arkansas and to not have with budget cuts looming in the future to not have any budget cuts.  They've had 13 cuts to medical imaging since 2006."
The eleven year breast cancer survivor spoke with several of our leaders, " I got to speak to Representative Womack  I got to speak to someone in Senator Mark Pryors office and I left some information for Senator Boozman." She says, she just wants to help ensure the best medical care possible for others, "I was caught with an annual mammogram.  So,  I'm kind of the poster child for early detection and for the importance of having mammography available and ready in any state in any city so that you have no excuses not to go get your mammogram. And  then of coarse, radiation played a big part in how my cure was handled.  I didn't have any chemotherapy. I believe whole-heartedly we need that access to medical imaging. Not only am i an eleven year survivor, but i was lucky enough to get married 5 years ago.  So your whole life is ahead of you."
