​MAKING THE ROUNDS

For the past 15 years I’ve been proud to run the Caridad Center Breast Awareness Program sponsored by Susan G Komen for the Cure. The Affiliate has supported Caridad Center in providing thousands of women the benefit of making sense of the complex world of breast cancer. With this help, Caridad has been able to provide education, access, navigation and referrals to thousands of men and women. 

During the past 15 years, Caridad doctors performed approximately 20,000 clinical breast exams. In addition, Komen has given peace of mind to more than 19,000 Caridad patients whose mammogram found them to be cancer free, and who learned how to continue having healthy breasts. Approximately 375 women each year receive follow up referrals for additional diagnostic studies and, when necessary, assistance with transportation and interpreters. We also schedule consultations with a volunteer breast surgeon. During the past 15 years, 20 Caridad women identified with breast cancer were able to get treatment and 19 of the 20 are still surviving. We hope to do this for many more years at Caridad Center!

CAPITAL CAMPAIGN UPDATE

It's an exciting time for Caridad Center as we are midway through construction that will more than double the size of our facility. The project will also increase patient visits by more than 50%, up from 25,000 per year to 35,000 or 40,000 per year. 

The $5 million Capital Campaign to renovate  & expand Caridad Center launched in 2012 and we're still looking to fund the final $1 million needed to meet the increasing need for medical, dental and social services in Palm Beach County. To raise the final donations, we are offering naming opportunities and donations of all amounts are welcomed online at caridad.thankyou4caring.org. For the many ways other ways to donate, please contact Vicki Lynch, vlynchdevelopmentadvisor@gmail.com.
