St. Mary’s Foundation receives donation from Lawrence County (Ky.) High School
(HUNTINGTON)—The St. Mary’s Medical Center Foundation Pink Ribbon Fund has received a $1014 donation from the Lawrence County (Ky.) High School Bulldog Quarterback Club in Louisa, Ky.
The Pink Ribbon Fund helps to provide mammograms to uninsured and underinsured women.
“This was a way for us to honor all of our loved ones lost to this horrible disease of breast cancer,” said Mary Adams, LCHS guidance counselor and Quarterback Club vice-president.
The club chose the Pink Ribbon Fund as the recipient of its gift because St. Mary’s is where Adams receives her yearly mammograms and she has always been pleased with her care.
“We are very appreciative of the Quarterback Club for their donation to the Pink Ribbon Fund,” said Anne Hammack, RN, BSN, Breast Center clinical manager. “Many women across the Tri-State will benefit from their kindness and generosity.”
The Quarterback Club is the LCHS football team’s booster club. It funded the donation through the sale of its first ever breast cancer T-shirt.
For information about donating to the Pink Ribbon Fund, contact the Foundation at (304) 526-8180. For information about scheduling a mammogram, call (304) 526-8221.
Anne Hammack, St. Mary’s Breast Center clinical manager and David Sheils, St. Mary’s Foundation President, receive a check for $1014 from the Lawrence County High School football team for the St. Mary’s Pink Ribbon Fund.
