Bayhealth is pleased to announce it has received a $10,000 grant from the Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation, the charitable giving arm of Perdue Farms, to support its breast cancer screening program.

“Part of our mission is making sure everyone in our community has access to screenings, which play a role in lifelong health and early detection of cancer,” said Bayhealth Cancer Institute Manager Stephanie McClellan. “Our breast cancer screening program, which is designed especially for underserved populations, is a cornerstone of this mission. We’re very grateful to Perdue, as the grant they awarded us will be used to assist our efforts related to off-site screenings for those who are best served by this option.”

Bayhealth Foundation President Lindsay Rhodenbaugh also acknowledged what the grant means not only to Bayhealth but to the community. “Perdue’s generous award will help us ensure women in Delaware, no matter what their circumstances, receive the breast cancer screenings they need for their overall health and wellness.”

“Early detection is one of the most vital issues in fighting breast cancer,” said Senior Director of Perdue Healthworks® Dawn Carey. “At Perdue, we educate associates on early detection of breast cancer through self-examinations and intervention programs provided by our network of onsite Wellness Centers staffed by healthcare professionals. Thanks to the commitment of early detection, screening and education programs provided by organizations like Bayhealth, the survival rate is improving for many Delawareans. It’s because of the resources of the Perdue Foundation that enables us to continue to have a positive impact like this in the communities where Perdue associates live and work.”

Bayhealth’s breast cancer screening program offers clinical breast exams and mammograms to the community, with a focus on those who are uninsured or underinsured or who don’t have access to screenings such as Spanish speaking workers and other underserved women in central and southern Delaware.
