Northside Hospital’s Breast Care Program recently received $6,000 from Carolina Cups, organizers of LoCo Motion, a three day, 30-mile walk/run event through the South Carolina Lowcountry. More than 750 people, representing 19 states, participated in the event, Sept. 27-29, which benefited several regional cancer organizations, including Northside Hospital.

“Like so many other Lowcountry residents, I have family in Atlanta, and Northside Hospital has taken care of my family for generations,” said Laura Morgan, event organizer. “I also know that many women in South Carolina choose to get treatment at Northside because of its stellar breast care program’s reputation. We are honored to help support that program and we look forward to a long partnership with Northside and the Atlanta community.”

More cases of breast cancer are diagnosed and treated at Northside Hospital than at any other community hospital in the Southeast. The hospital offers a complete range of services for patients including education, genetic counseling, imaging, radiation oncology, surgery, support, rehabilitation and more – covering every aspect of breast care.

This is the third year that Carolina Cups has supported Northside’s Breast Care Program. To date, more than $12,650 has been donated for education and support services for the hospital’s breast cancer patients.

“We are grateful that Carolina Cups has decided to support our Breast Care Program, once again,” said Patti Owen, director of oncology services, Northside Hospital. “We are honored to be a part of such an exciting and successful event.”
