tgin Partners with Lyft

  • February 12, 2021

The tgin Foundation partnered with the transportation network company Lyft, to provide affordable and reliable transportation services for Chicago area African American women, going to and from medical facilities for breast health screenings and chemo appointments. 

Lyft awarded the grant to the tgin Foundation to aid the Foundation’s mission to support African American women undergoing treatment for breast cancer, highlight the impact of health disparities on survivor outcomes, and stress the importance of early detection for women under the age of 40. 

In the city of Chicago, Black women are 42% more likely to die from breast cancer than the general population. This partnership will helped eliminate transportation barriers that prevent women from obtaining a clinical breast exam, mammogram, attending follow-up visits or seeking treatment.
