Help 1st Way Get a Mobile Clinic to Save More Lives

1st Way's fundraiser this coming weekend is because we're trying to get a mobile unit.

(The image to the left is a mobile unit that is similar to the type 1st Way wants, only ours will have a different style and wrap.)

What's that all about? A mobile clinic can take us to where women are instead of just having women come to us. We will show up at convenient places and bring them help and information they need.

Imagine you are a young girl worried you might be pregnant, so you pull into Walmart to buy a pregnancy test. As soon as you park, you see a van that advertised not only free pregnancy tests, but free ultrasounds and counseling, too. So, you decide to check it out.

Inside, you are greeted by a friendly counselor who offers you some cool water or hot tea. You can tell right away that you are surrounded by non-judgmental support and caring about you as a person as well as for your child, and counselors will try to do anything possible to help solve problems that may stand in the way of your ability to give birth to your child.

Imagine stepping into a van and being able to see your baby's heart beat within your first hour's visit. How will this influence the way you feel about the life growing inside you? 

1st Way intends to take our van all over Eugene, parking in different neighborhoods, office complexes, shopping centers and parks. We'll also park across from Planned Parenthood on occasion.

Take a look at a video of a  mobile clinic in Rockford Illinois. The ultrasound tech takes us on a tour of the unit to look at the equipment there. 

We need @$100,000 to make this dream a reality.
40th Anniversary Celebration this August 4 is only the beginning of our fundraising efforts.

Contact us if you'd like to come to our banquet. We may have reduced or donated tickets available, if we hear from you soon. Pass the word around to others, too. Email me at or visit for event information and to pay via PayPal.

We hope to see you there!
