The Old Town Shops, located in downtown Flagstaff, presented the Cancer Centers of Northern ArizonaHealthcare – Flagstaff with a check for more than $1,800. P.J. Chilcottage and Mix on the Square donated a portion of their sale proceeds from October, which is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, to help support local women battling breast cancer.
“This is the third year we have joined forces with the community and the Cancer Center at Flagstaff Medical Center to help women who are fighting breast cancer,” said Lisa Brink, P.J. Chilcottage. “We are honored to help support these women and we look forward to doing even more in the years to come.”
According to Jeff Axtell, director of the Cancer Centers of Northern Arizona Healthcare (CCNAH), the funds will be used to directly benefit local cancer patients through the Breast Cancer Resource Center. The Breast Cancer Resource Center provides education, resources and support services for women undergoing treatment. Services include a one-on-one breast surgery preparation class; post-op garments, breast prosthesis and mastectomy bras; and a comprehensive library with computer access and personalized assistance.
The Cancer Center also supports breast cancer patients through its nurse navigator program. Specially trained and certified oncology nurses are available to help women and their families “navigate” through their cancer journey.
The Cancer Centers of Northern Arizona Healthcare (CCNAH), located in Flagstaff and Sedona, are devoted to the prevention, early diagnosis and overall improvements in cancer care through advanced technology and individualized care.
