Ceredo Elementary 4th Graders Donate $1,175 to Good Samaritan Fund http://edwardsccc.org/news-and-events/ceredo-elementary-4th-graders-donate-1175-to-good-samaritan-fund/ <div class="captionImage right" style="width: 300px;"><img class="right" title="" src="http://edwardsccc.org/assets/Images/Content/News/_resampled/resizedimage330209-Hanna-Cassidy-GoodSam-fund-2014-web.jpg" alt="" height="209" width="330"><p class="caption">Cassidy Stoner, ECCC nurse navigator Gigi Gerlach and Hannah Moore</p> </div> <p>For Hanna Moore and Cassidy Stoner, the rubber band bracelets and handmade scarves they sold were more than just items to sell; they were symbols of help for patients battling cancer at the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center on the campus of Cabell Huntington Hospital.</p> <p>Moore and Stoner are fourth graders at Ceredo Elementary School in Wayne County. They are close friends who wanted to help breast cancer patients because they know women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Since they both have October birthdays, they asked relatives for money for the Good Samaritan Fund instead of personal gifts. In addition, they created and sold rubber band bracelets and scarves made by Moore’s mother to friends and family.</p> <p>In early December, the girls presented $1,175 to the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center for the Good Samaritan Fund, which helps cancer patients with expenses that are incidental to cancer treatment, such as vehicle repairs, lodging and fuel purchases.</p> <p>“For young children to recognize and care about the needs of our cancer patients is amazing to me. Their actions demonstrate hope to many, those who are affected and those who are watching and listening,” said Gigi Gerlach RN, a nurse navigator for breast cancer patients at the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center.  “Hanna and Cassidy are precious examples of the kindness, innocence and generosity of children and not only am I proud to accept their donation, I am proud to know them.”</p> <p>To learn more about the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center's Good Samaritan Fund and how you can help, please contact Velma Workman at <span class="phone">304-526-6314</span> or <a href="mailto:">velma.workman@chhi.org</a>.</p> Tue, 16 Dec 2014 13:06:44 -0500 http://edwardsccc.org/news-and-events/ceredo-elementary-4th-graders-donate-1175-to-good-samaritan-fund/ ECCC & CHH Breast Health Centers Earn NAPBC Accreditation http://edwardsccc.org/news-and-events/eccc-and-chh-breast-health-centers-earn-napbc-accreditation/ <p>The Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center <a href="http://edwardsccc.org/[sitetree_link,id=7]">Diagnostic Breast Center</a> and the <a href="http://cabellhuntington.org/services/breast-health/">Cabell Huntington Hospital Breast Health Center</a> have each been granted a three-year designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons.

As demonstrated by our accreditation, our program is led by group of multidisciplinary physicians and supported by a team of nurses and supportive care personnel that understand the unique needs of women with breast diseases.”</p> <p>The Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center Diagnostic Breast Center has two full-time breast surgeons and a team of experienced nursing staff and breast health navigators to guide patients through each step of their diagnosis and treatment.</p> <p>During the survey process, the centers must demonstrate compliance with standards established by the NAPBC for treating women who are diagnosed with any of the full spectrum of breast diseases. The standards include proficiency in the areas of center leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education and quality improvement.  A breast center that achieves NAPBC accreditation has demonstrated a firm commitment to offer its patients every significant advantage in their battle against breast disease.</p> <p>For more information about breast health services or scheduling a screening mammogram, please call <span class="phone">304.526.2440</span>.</p> Tue, 16 Dec 2014 10:21:41 -0500 http://edwardsccc.org/news-and-events/eccc-and-chh-breast-health-centers-earn-napbc-accreditation/ December Calendar of Campus Events http://edwardsccc.org/news-and-events/december-calendar-of-campus-events/ <p>Here's a list of upcoming events at Cabell Huntington Hospital, Hoops Family Children's Hospital and Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center.

About 1 in 8 women born today in the US will get breast cancer at some point. The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. A mammogram, the screening test for breast cancer, can help find breast cancer early when it’s easier to treat. For the staff of the Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is a chance to make a difference and raise awareness about the importance of early detection of breast cancer.</p> <p>Here is what they have planned:</p> <h3><strong>• Breast Cancer Survivors' Dinner</strong></h3> <p>Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2014 at 5:30 p.m.</p> <p>New Baptist Church at 610 28th Street in Huntington</p> <p class="phone">304-526-2440</p> <h3>• Think Pink Fashion Show</h3> <p>Saturday, Oct. 11, 2014 at 1 p.m.</p> <p>Huntington Mall</p> <h3><a href="http://edwardsccc.org/[sitetree_link,id=155]">• Free Clinical Breast Exams</a></h3> <p>Friday, Oct. 17, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.</p> <p>Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center</p> <p class="phone">304-526-2440</p> <h3>• Breast Cancer Support Group</h3> <p>Monday, Oct. 20, 2014 at 5:30 p.m.</p> <p>Edwards Comprehensive Cancer Center</p> <p class="phone">304-526-2443</p> <h3>• 6th Annual Breast Cancer Conference</h3> <p>Friday, Oct. 24, 2014 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.</p> <p>Harless Auditorium at Cabell Huntington Hospital</p> <p class="phone">304-526-2440</p> <h3>• Brunch at Tiffany's</h3> <p>Sunday, Oct. 26, 2014 from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.</p> <p>Cabell Huntington Hospital Atrium</p> <p class="phone">304-526-2440</p> <h3>• Look Good...
