Frewsburg Girls Soccer Supports Local Breast Cancer Care at WCA Hospital

WCA Hospital
The Frewsburg Girls Soccer Teams, wearing their “Kicks For A Cure” pink t-shirts, recently presented WCA Hospital with a $500 check, money they raised this season in support of local breast cancer care.

Jamestown, New York (Wednesday, August 21, 2013)—For the second consecutive year, the Frewsburg Girls Soccer Teams paid special tribute to Coach Ericka Alm’s mom, Linda Johnson, who is a breast cancer survivor. The girls, with the help of their Booster Club, once again donated proceeds from concessions, 50-50 raffles, and bucket donations to WCA Hospital to aid in the local fight against breast cancer.

Through their outstanding efforts, they recently made an $800 gift (they gave $500 in 2012) toward the purchase of 3-D Breast Tomosynthesis in the WCA Center for Imaging & Medical Arts. This state-of-the-art technology will aid in breast cancer detection, because early detection means faster intervention, more treatment options, and improved survival rates.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible gift to support local breast cancer care, please contact Karl Sisson, WCA Director of Development, at (716) 487-6874 or mail your tax-deductible gift to: WCA Office of Development, PO Box 840, Jamestown, New York 14702-0840, or visit www.wcahospital.org.
