Sharon Lelfield, Daytona State College Chapter of Association of Florida Colleges Breast Cancer Awareness Month Chair, said the money was raised for the Florida Hospital Memorial Foundation. The funds will be used exclusively for uninsured or underinsured women’s screening mammograms, diagnostic testing and other treatment, regardless of the woman’s age.
“Hundreds of needy women who have lost their jobs, are without insurance or can’t afford high insurance co-pays ask us for help,” said Carol Rumer, Florida Hospital Imaging Center Manager. “Too often, grants from the government have age or other conditions preventing us from helping area women. These funds from Daytona State College allow us to help women who otherwise would not get the care they need.”
