St. Mary Mercy Hospital Golf Classic Raises over $280,000!
Thank you for your generous support of the 2014 St. Mary Mercy Hospital's "Tee it Up" Golf Classic- In Pink! This year not only did we host our annual event on June 16th but we added a *new* All-Women's golf Classic that was held on July 7th, both at Meadowbrook Country Club. Our outings combined brought in over $280,000! Proceeds will benefit the St. Mary Mercy Hospitals' Comprehensive Breast Cancer Center and the Helen Palmer Image Recovery Center.
The Comprehensive Breast Center benefits patients who rely on the hospital for a full spectrum of care including prevention and education, diagnosis and treatment, access to research studies, support services and a nurse navigator who helps coordinate care every step of the way. Support will help to purchase additional digital mammography equipment and support our MammoPlus® program, combining screening services with a risk assessment developed by the National Cancer Institute to help determine a patient's lifetime risk for breast cancer. Gifts will also support our certified Helen Palmer Image Recovery Center for essential, personalized services such as wig and prosthetics fittings, oncology massage therapy and hair styling and make-up tutorials that help enhance appearance, reduce pain and restore hope. Your gift for the events will support our Comprehensive Breast Center – innovative programs, advanced medicine and hope.
This year, over 100 businesses offered a variety of monetary and in-kind gifts to make this event our biggest success yet! A very special thanks goes to our Lead Sponsor, Mendelson Kornblum Orthopedics and Spine Surgeons.
