October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. The Edge Art Gallery and TLC Federal Credit Union have joined forces again, to raise funds for Lincoln County cancer patients. Custom blown glass pink pumpkins, created by the artists of The Edge Art Gallery, may be purchased at TLC Federal Credit Union in Newport and Lincoln City and at The Edge Art Gallery throughout the month of October. Prices range from $20 to $45. Pink Pumpkin classes are also available at The Edge Art Gallery, supporting the cause. A portion of the proceeds raised will be 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.
Please help us fight Lincoln County cancer one pink pumpkin at a time.
