We received this letter from the Cabarrus Health Alliance recently.
Dear Karen and Renda,
On behalf of the Cabarrrus Health Alliance, I would like to thank both of you and the Focused on a Cure Foundation, for awarding this grant to our cancer screening and outreach programs, from the Piggin' Out for Pink and other fundraiser held in 2010.
Sisters in Partnership has proven to be a powerful tool in the fight against breast cancer, because the basis of this program is networking for information, advice and support. This program received $X, which will be utilized for breast models, printed educational and promotional materials for outreach projects, and to promote outreach events and BCCCP clinics, all for the purpose of community education and support about breast cancer.
Mammograms received $X, which will be utilitzed for diagnostic procedures including screenings and mammograms for low-income, uninsured and underserved women, ages 40-64, which will result in early breast cancer detection and a more positive prognosis.
Under the direction of Program Coordinator, Virginia Hunter, both of these cancer outreach programs have seen great successes and tremendous growth in recent years. With the generous support of Focused on a Cure, Cabarrus Health Alliance will be able to reach out to the community and serve an even greater number of women in the coming year, with the hopes that this early detection, education, and follow-up care will save precious lives.
Cabarrus Health Alliance and the Cabarrus Health Alliance Board sincerely appreciate the wonderful work your foundation is doing to spread awarenss and to provide hope for so many. Your generosity is a tremendous encouragement to us.
Charles C. Phillips, Chairman
Cabarrus Health Alliance Board
