NORWICH – Lauded for its efforts in spreading the word about breast cancer and the life-saving results of early detection, the Chenango Health Network has been awarded a $60,000 one-year grant to continue its Every Woman Counts in Chenango County Campaign.
The grant comes by way of the Avon Breast Health Outreach Program, a privately funded entity whose mission is to link medically underserved women to breast health education and screening services. The Chenango Health Network is one of only 52 organizations in the country to receive funding from the Avon Foundation, making it the county’s leading agency in education outreach for breast cancer. The campaign also helps women with travel expenses to get treatment at the nearest treatment facilities in Binghamton, Syracuse, Utica and Cooperstown.
This marks the eleventh year the Chenango Health Network has received help from the Avon Foundation.
