Aiken Regional Presents Funds to the Best Chance Network

Aiken, SC (July 11, 2013) -- Aiken Regional Medical Centers (ARMC) and Women Enlightened for Better Health (WE), presented a check for $5,573 to the Best Chance Network, an affiliate of the American Cancer Society.  The funds were raised at the second annual WE Oyster Roast on Saturday, April 2 at the Fermata Club. 

The proceeds were donated to the Best Chance Network to benefit women in Aiken County who need help with the cost of preventative screenings for breast and cervical cancer. South Carolina ranks ninth in the nation for estimated deaths from cervical cancer and 25th from breast cancer.  In Aiken County alone, there were 122 new cases of breast cancer in 2011. When detected early, there is a 98% survival rate for breast cancer.  

"The Best Chance Network has been able to provide breast and cervical screenings since 1991 to 3,062 women in Aiken County and of those 62 were positive for breast cancer and 17 for cervical cancer," said Dianna Lydiard, PhD, program director at Best Chance Network. 

"Aiken Regional Medical Centers is pleased to be able to help the Best Chance Network for the second year.  We are glad to work with an organization that provides access to preventative screenings for women that would be unable to access otherwise," said Carols Milanes, chief executive officer of ARMC.  

ARMC thanks all of the sponsors of the event:  A.B. Beverage Company, Inc., J.C's Seafood, Allegra Marketing Print and Mail and The Fermata Club.
