"Francine’s Friends is able to service our community in the most convenient way by coming directly to businesses and organizations.  The coach provides women a safe and comfortable environment for mammograms.  The volunteers who run this organization have become our forever friends in saving women’s lives all over Northeast Indiana, especially DeKalb County."

"Francine's Friends is so happy to support the DeKalb County Pink Out and our special friends of Tri Kappa!" echoed Sharon Simmons, Francine's Friends board president. "Early detection is our best protection and Tri Kappa is dedicated to spreading the word about the importance of regular screening mammograms. Partnering with Tri Kappa and Pink Out is a natural for Francine's Friends."
