JAMESTOWN — On Sunday, Oct. 22, a group of local bowlers hosted the 9th annual Framed in Pink: Bowling Over Breast Cancer at the Jamestown Bowling Company. This charity event supported local breast cancer care at UPMC Chautauqua WCA through their endowment fund at WCA Foundation and paid tribute to loved ones who have battled this deadly disease.

“I couldn’t be more thankful to Sue Lamb and her committee for their incredible support,” said Betsy Wright, President/CEO of UPMC Chautauqua WCA. “If it wasn’t for their vision for our community and their commitment to our community hospital, we wouldn’t be able to receive the funds necessary to support such a great program at UPMC Chautauqua WCA.”

“The day was filled with so much support, encouragement and of course tons of fun, myself along with my committee members are so honored and excited to be part of such an amazing event,” said Lamb. Framed in Pink has raised over $34,000 which benefits local breast cancer care at UPMC Chautauqua WCA.

UPMC Chautauqua WCA Cancer Care Program is one of the 25 percent of New York programs accredited by the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons. The program includes prevention education, screening, diagnostics, data collection and registry, and a holistic approach to cancer care.

As new advances are made in surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and other areas of cancer treatment, UPMC Chautauqua WCA is committed to bringing them to the community. WCA’s aim is to set realistic treatment goals according to the national standards, while meeting medical, psychological and nutritional needs. WCA provides patients and their families with the answers they need about diagnosis, treatment and recovery.
