Woman’s Victory Open Golf Tournament
Take a swing to help fight breast cancer by participating in the 18th Annual Woman’s Victory Open (WVO) golf tournament.

The Country Club of Louisiana
One in eight women will get breast cancer. Early detection is the best defense. In Louisiana, the fight against breast cancer is compounded because many women do not have access to the healthcare and screening they need. As a result, Louisiana has the highest mortality rate from breast cancer in the nation. Woman’s has taken that fight on the road with its Mammography Coach.
Woman’s Mammography Coach
Woman’s Mammography Coach reduces geographic and financial barriers to care
by bringing breast care directly to women, including those who lack transportation or health insurance.
Since 2006, Woman’s Mammography Coach has performed more than 40,000 mammograms.
In 2015, Woman’s Mammography Coach:
- Diagnosed breast cancer in 26 women.
- Served 4,784 women, of which 50 percent were uninsured or underinsured.
- Traveled 16,143 miles for a total of 215 trips.
We Need Your Help!
It costs $535,000 annually to keep Woman’s Mammography Coach on the road.
Future needs include refurbishing the existing Mammography Coach and purchasing an additional coach with the latest 3D mammography technology for a total cost of approximately $1.5 million.
