2014 Volley 4A Cure Nets $10,000 for Methodist Charlton Breast Cancer Screening, Services

charlton methodistVolley 4A Cure is an annual volleyball tournament at the Canterbury Episcopal School in DeSoto to raise awareness and funds for early breast cancer detection. The majority of the proceeds from most recent event, $10,000, went to the Methodist Health System Foundation for the Methodist Charlton Medical Center Women’s Imaging Center in support of early detection of breast cancer. The event also supports the hospital’s breast cancer nurse navigator program, which assists women diagnosed with breast cancer in the last year.

The Volley 4A Cure event and grant were founded by breast cancer survivor and Canterbury parent Sheri Mathis in 2009 to raise awareness and assist uninsured and low-income women in receiving screening mammograms free of charge.

To date, this annual event has contributed more than $40,000 to Methodist Charlton’s breast cancer services.

Methodist Health System is a nonprofit organization. If you are interested in supporting breast cancer screening or other vital health care and community programs, please contact the Methodist Health System Foundation at 214-947-4555 or visit them online at Foundation.MethodistHealthSystem.org.
