Virtual ribbons will be posted in late October at www.cghmc.com/2022tributes.
Since the event’s inception, the focus has been on raising funds for the CGH Women’s Health Program. “New this year, we’ll be raising funds to assist the hundreds of area individuals and families who are impacted by dementia," said Lindsey. “We are creating a dementia navigator position to serve as that point person who will guide our patients upon diagnosis in determining next steps and in finding resources."
The Foundation partners with the hospital in providing screening mammograms with no out-of-pocket costs to area women. Diagnostic tests, breast biopsies, ultrasounds and MRIs are also partially covered. Comfort bags for breast cancer patients and meals for CGH Medical Center chemotherapy patients are funded as well.
The Delicious Designs Virtual Silent Auction will go live on Oct. 19 for review of the baskets, but bidding starts 7 a.m. Oct. 20.
