In 2013, this charity event raised a record $11,471 to benefit local the local fight against breast cancer. Over four years, got pink? has now raised and donated over $34,000 to WCA Hospital. These gifts have been utilized to help WCA purchase new breast cancer detection equipment. This year, all proceeds will once again aid in the local detection of breast cancer through the purchase of 3-D Breast Tomosynthesis. The professionals in the WCA Center for Imaging and Medical Arts recognize that early detection means faster intervention, more treatment options and improved survival rates.
