Thank you to Carolina Cups

info@islandpacket.comJanuary 22, 2013 

We thank Carolina Cups members so much for the donation of $8,000. This will help more than 50 patients receive a free clinical breast exam and mammogram at Beaufort Jasper Hampton Comprehensive Health Services. The remaining funds will provide follow-up procedures for biopsies or other breast health procedures.

In 2012, Carolina Cups donated $3,500 to the Reach Out to Care program at BJHCHS. This provided 35 mammograms to uninsured patients at the 200 percent poverty level. This helps patients who are struggling financially and who are underinsured.

The Reach Out to Care Program detected two patients with breast cancer in 2012. These women probably would not have accessed care unless this program was available.

Thank you for helping us serve patients of the Lowcountry.
