LCMH is going PINK for the month of October

  • Lawrence County Memorial Hospital is going PINK for the month of October.
  • In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the hospital has announced that the large flag pole at the front of the property at 2200 State Street will be lit up with pink lights throughout the month.
  • “Cancer has affected everybody in one way or another,” said hospital purchasing director Jessica Brink. “Last year we had a health fair to jump start the month, but something like this had never been done before. I feel like it’s something the community will support very much.”
  • This is also a chance to put breast cancer awareness in the spotlight. Hospital officials report mammograms are available at LCMH every Tuesday morning and every Friday afternoon.  In addition, they can be scheduled every other Monday, as well as on the fourth Saturday of each month. The hospital also has a mobile mammography unit, which in the past has been taken to some of Lawrence County’s larger employers, such as Toyota Boshoku Illinois east of Lawrenceville, and Rucker’s Wholesale Candy, in Bridgeport.
  • Don Robbins, Chief Executive Officer at the hospital, says, “This is something the hospital can be a part of to really promote breast cancer awareness. It’s exciting, not only because it will include the teammates within our organization, but also because it will include the folks in our community.”
