-A +A
The Breast Health Center at Sutter Roseville Medical Center received another significant donation from the Breast Cancer Awareness Bowling League — this time totaling more than $3,400. The funds were presented to hospital administrators and clinicians at a check presentation ceremony that took place April 5 inside Sutter Roseville Medical Center’s lobby. “We are so honored and grateful that the Breast Cancer Awareness Bowling League has chosen to donate funds to us again,” said Amy Beazizo, R.N., clinical manager of the center. “Our mission is to enhance the health and well-being of those within the community, and the league’s gift will absolutely contribute to our goal.” Originally launched in 2008, the Breast Cancer Awareness League is a non-sanctioned, handicap league for both men and women at AMF Rocklin Lanes. The league has held 16-week tournaments from fall to winter, with a portion of the weekly dues and money raised through various raffles making up the donation. They have raised more than $8,600 in the two years that they have solely fundraised on behalf of the Breast Health Center at Sutter Roseville. The Breast Health Center at Sutter Roseville Medical Center is a comprehensive center designed to meet the wide variety of needs women have in relation to their breast health. Services include educational and support resources, screening programs, diagnosis, intervention, treatment and management of many different diseases of the breast. The team consists of physicians from many specialties, nurses, technologists, data managers, social workers, research coordinators and volunteers who deliver personal care to each patient and her loved ones.
