Boswell raises $900 for Susan G. Komen of Mississippi in first annual

Breast Cancer Awareness event


Boswell Regional Center was proud to be a part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month activities in October, joining other healthcare facilities across the nation in increasing awareness and raising funds for Susan G. Komen of Mississippi.

Boswell presented a check for $900 to Catherine Young, executive director of Susan G. Komen in Flowood. Organized by Public Relations, employees and individuals raised money through pink t-shirt sales, an awareness walk with an entry fee for staff; sponsorship opportunities for walkers and the sale of pink sugar cookies. Activities were held to raise money as well as honor of staff, individuals and family members who are survivors of breast cancer.

Educational information on early detection and treatment methods were distributed throughout the month. Staff and family members were also informed of and took advantage of free mammograms and wellness checks as part of a special program offered by the Mississippi Department of Health.
