The Geary Community Hospital Rago Radiology Department received a mammography chair from Rhonda Sharp, owner of The Mane Thing and Headlines. Throughout the month of October The Mane Thing and Headlines run a breast cancer awareness campaign called “Color for a Cure.” For every hair color service at both salons, a portion of the proceeds is donated toward the “Color for a Cure” campaign. Those proceeds are used to purchase equipment through the Geary Community Foundation related to breast health and wellness, such as the mammography chair.
“After visiting with Pat Small and patients among the community, it became aware to me that this chair is a valid need in our GCH Radiology Department,” said Jolana Montgomery-Matney, Executive Director of the Geary Community Foundation. “This was a great opportunity to designate “Color for a Cure” campaign funds toward the chair and meet the needs of our GCH patients and families. It’s also a prime example of the several services the Geary Community Foundation provides. We keep up to date on the community health and connect the dots between our patient’s needs and generous donors among the community.”
“This chair is very special to have, it is helpful for our patients and improves their experience here at GCH,” said Joe Stratton, GCH chief executive officer. “Some of our patients cannot stand for very long and can make the mammogram difficult to conduct. The adjustable mammography chair allows patients to sit comfortably and have their exam completed effectively.”
