The Edge Art Gallery and TLC Federal Credit Union recently joined forces to raise funds for Lincoln County cancer patients. Custom blown glass pink pumpkins, created by the artists of The Edge Art Gallery, were available for purchase at TLC Federal Credit Union in Newport and Lincoln City throughout the months of October and November. A total of $1,535 was raised.
100% of the proceeds raised have been split between PCHD Foundation Women’s Cancer Fund and the NLH Foundation’s Snowflake Mammography Fund.
PCHD Foundation Women’s Cancer Fund is dedicated primarily to assist qualifying women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer or who are suspected of having breast cancer. However, the fund can help women with other forms of cancer as needed. Local patients receive prescription, transportation, and medical bill assistance; mammograms; nutritional supplements needed as the result of chemotherapy; and post-mastectomy undergarments.
The Snowflake Mammography fund at NLH Foundation assists patients with established financial need to receive breast cancer assessment, diagnosis, and/or support services. The foundation also provides informational and educational programs about breast health, breast cancer, and other cancers that mainly occur in women.
