In 2014, this charity event raised over $10,000 to benefit local the local fight against breast cancer. Over five years, got pink? has now raised and donated over $44,000 to WCA Hospital. These gifts have been utilized to help WCA purchase new breast cancer detection equipment. This year, all proceeds will once again aid in the local detection of breast cancer through the purchase of the Hologic Stereotactic Upright chair. The professionals in the Center for Imaging & Medical Arts at WCA recognize that early detection means faster intervention, more treatment options, and improved survival rates.
