Good Charity, Inc. Supports the Beaumont Hospital Foundation
June 18th, 2013 by Brian Maiorana
At Good Charity Inc., we are proud to support initiatives that provide innovative technology and advanced treatment benefits for breast cancer patients and their families. We endorse a holistic healthcare approach where both patients and families are able to benefit from any available support.
In keeping with this philosophy, we recently sponsored Beaumont Hospital Foundation’s ‘18th Annual Drive to Beat Breast Cancer‘ golf event. We see this as a wonderful opportunity to support a very worthy cause.
The ‘Drive to Beat Breast Cancer‘ event helps Beaumont Hospital increase the quality and reach of the programs offered to its patients. The direct benefits of this event are:
- Purchasing of state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment
- Support for breast cancer research
- Continuation of the annual fellowship for surgical residents in our breast care programs
- Underwriting a genetic counseling program for patients and their families at high risk of breast cancer
In addition to the golf event, Beaumont’s Comprehensive Breast Care Center is recognized as a national leader in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer and disease. Through its leadership in the area of breast cancer, Beaumont’s achievements include the following:
- Detecting more early stage cancer than any other hospital in Michigan – early detection increases survival rates by 95%.
- Performing more than 100,000 breast screening mammograms annually with five board-certified breast surgeons and eight radiation oncologists on staff.
- Conducting MRI-guided breast biopsies that were pioneered by Beaumont radiologists for more precise diagnosis of tumors. Beaumont is one of only a few hospitals in the Midwest that provide these types of breast biopsies.
The result is that these diagnostic techniques enable Beaumont physicians to detect more than 1,000 new cases of breast cancer annually.
We are delighted to know that our support of Beaumont’s programs will not only help increase early detection but also continue to provide invaluable support for breast cancer patients and their families.
