West Valley shows support for breast cancer care and awareness

The West Valley High School football team and boosters presented a check for $8,107 on Wednesday, Dec. 4, 2013, to the Memorial Family of Services for breast cancer care and awareness from their Pink, Proud and Loud Campaign.

 The amount is more than triple the gift of $2,500 they presented last year. These dollars will stay in the Yakima Valley for breast cancer care at North Star Lodge Cancer Center and breast cancer screenings at ‘Ohana Mammography Center.

“Once again, the Pink, Proud and Loud Campaign came through for breast cancer prevention and breast cancer patients in the Yakima Valley,” said Darrin Cook, director of North Star Lodge. “We are so grateful for the continued support and enthusiasm of the West Valley football team and boosters.”

North Star Lodge, the distinctive centerpiece of Yakima Valley Memorial Hospital’s comprehensive cancer care services, offers medical and radiation oncology services, as well as clinical trials. ‘Ohana Mammography Center offers a variety of services to ensure breast health, from screening mammography and core biopsy to breast health education and financial counseling.
