Saturday May 19 was a rainy day, but the weather did not dampen the success of the visit of the Novant/UVA mammography van to Trinity Church.
The purpose of the van’s visit was to provide early breast cancer screening to ladies over 40 regardless of their ability to pay. The Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation, based in Middleburg, helped to make the van visit possible. Trinity Church’s Outreach mission efforts have long supported the Cherry Blossom Foundation’s objectives which include early detection and education about breast cancer.
The ladies from Novant/UVA who staffed the van screened patients every 20 minutes from 9 AM - 4 PM. They worked through their lunch hour, and stayed after the 4 PM closing time to serve as many women as possible.
Many thanks to Betsy Crenshaw who ensured that the appointment scheduling went smoothly, and to the many members of Trinity Church who also serve on the Board of the Cherry Blossom Breast Cancer Foundation, and who gave of their time to welcome the ladies to the Mammography Van.
