Lewis Mills Girls’ Volleyball Raises $816 for CHH Pink Rose Fund

December 09, 2021

Each year, the Lewis Mills High School girls volleyball team comes together for a very special cause, raising awareness and money for Charlotte Hungerford Hospital’s Pink Rose Breast Cancer Fund. This year, members of the team pitched in and helped raise $816.34 in donations at their annual Dig Pink fundraiser.

“The overwhelming support and generosity we receive from the volleyball team and their supporters at Lewis Mills is so gratifying to all of us,” said Tammy Rouleau, R.N, the CHH Breast Cancer Nurse Navigator. “Their enthusiasm and interest in organizing and achieving this very successful fundraiser will directly help women access lifesaving early detection services that are critical to improved outcomes for our patients.”

The Pink Rose Fund, established in 1998, provides financial support for educational outreach and screening to assure that women in northwest Connecticut have comprehensive, coordinated access to services related to breast cancer prevention and treatment.

The purpose of the hospital’s Early Detection Program is to ensure that ALL women in our community have access to regular mammograms. Early detection through mammography has been found to be the safest and most effective way of finding breast cancer in its earliest and most treatable stages.
