Supporting breast cancer awareness

The Bedford County Technical Center's Health Assisting program raised $502.77 for Breast Cancer Awareness during October, which was Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The students in Mrs. Styer's class reached their goal of $500 in just two weeks. The Bedford County Technical Center's culinary arts class baked and donated pink ribbon cookies for the health assisting students to sell. The money was donated to the Joyce Murtha Breast Cancer Center in Windber. Many of the health assisting students presented the check to Erin Goins, a representative of the Joyce Murtha Breast Cancer Center. On the left, BCTC's Vickie Styer, far left, hands the check to Joyce Murtha Breast Cancer representative Erin Goins. The BCTC health assisting students who also helped present the check are (starting from the third from the left): Kate McNamara, Stasia Hauze, Sabrina Adams, Lily Lemin, Brianna Graham, Michaela Frye, Angie Mullaney, August Hill, Kayla Hinish, Makeisha Lewis, Willow Harman, Taylor Barkman, and Diamond Baughman.
Maybrook Hills Rehabilitation and Healthcare held a facility fundraising event for the American Cancer Society. Maybrook Hills recognizes breast cancer survival and the battle that some individuals face daily, so every October employees work together to raise funds to help fight and find a cure. This year, they raised $1,410, and all proceeds were given to the American Cancer Society. Taking part in the check presentation in the above photo are (from left): Sherri Evangelisto, Josh Eisen, Shannon Warburton of the American Cancer Society and Crystal Burgoon.

Bodenshatz raised the funds at her shop in just four days by selling pink flower bouquets. Their generous support helps fund Pink Ribbon Care, a program that provides assistance for patients who are unable to pay for breast-related health services — including mammograms, follow-up diagnostic services and genetic counseling.
