Fulton, NY – Oswego County Opportunities Cancer Services Program recently received some much needed support when representatives of the Ladies Golf League at Cold Springs Golf Course in Mannsville presented the program with the proceeds of its fourth annual Rally For the Cure Golf Tournament Against Breast Cancer.
Over the past three years the league has raised several thousand dollars in support of Oswego County Opportunities’ Cancer Services Program Partnership, which provides free mammograms, breast exams, and breast ultrasounds for uninsured and under-insured women in Oswego County. This year’s tournament raised $2,764.
“I am very grateful that Arlene Bauer and the other ladies who are coordinating this golf tournament recognize the work that we do and see the value that it has in our community,” said Carolyn Handville, coordinator of OCO’s Cancer Services Program. “On behalf of everyone involved with the Cancer Services Program, and those we serve, I extend my sincerest thanks for remembering us again this year and to all the business and individuals who graciously sponsored the tournament.”
Administered through Oswego County Opportunities, the Cancer Services Program Partnership offers a number of cancer screening services including: Clinical Breast Exams, Mammograms, Pap/Pelvic Exams, and Colorectal Cancer Screenings for men and women.
These screenings are available year round, free of charge, and play an important part in maintaining good health.
