Ribbon Run proceeds help ensure our region has access to the latest diagnostic technology through the Breast Centers at not-for-profit Huntsville Hospital and Madison Hospital. The 2021 event will provide two software upgrades for screening mammography machines. This upgraded technology means higher-resolution images, improved cancer detection and a likely decrease in the number of false positive examinations.
$277,000 in net proceeds contributed to new state-of-the-art 3D mammography + biopsy equipment for Huntsville Hospital Breast Center
"When I went to the Surviving and Thriving program, none of us in that room had the same type of breast cancer; none of us had the same treatment. But, we had all heard those three scary words – ‘you have cancer.’ When I asked where the funds for the program came from, and they said the Liz Hurley Breast Cancer Fund, I was so thankful to see the positive and tangible impact of the Ribbon Run. Every penny stays here and goes to the front lines of the fight. I owe this fund my life."
