In a wonderful long-standing tradition, Steffey Vines, Rejoice Run and Mom’s Mile race founder, presented Donalsonville Hospital with a generous donation to help sponsor free screening mammograms for the month of October.
Steffey said, “I hope that every year, this donation to our local hospital reminds women in our community to take care of themselves. Whether by getting a mammogram if they are over 40 or scheduling their annual skin check, even just having an annual visit with their doctor. Rejoice Run is a about
celebrating the lives and health of women and the people that love them.”
April Massey, Assistant Administrator at Donalsonville Hospital said, “We are so thankful to the Rejoice Run. Steffey continues to help bring awareness of early detection and prevention in our community through this annual race. Donalsonville Hospital is proud to offer the best in 3D mammography diagnostic testing and the earlier screening we can do, the better outcomes there are for patients.”
The Radiology Department at Donalsonville Hospital makes screening patients for Breast Cancer during the month of October a special event. According to Amy Allen, Donalsonville Hospital’s lead mammographer “Our staff works hard every month of the year, but Breast Cancer Awareness month is especially important as technicians work hard to communicate the importance of early detection with annual mammograms.”
October Free Mammogram screenings must be ordered and scheduled by a provider. Please call your doctor’s office and they will make an appointment for you at Donalsonville Hospital.
