Meet the Patients: A Breast Cancer Survivor Story

Beth Addison is a mom of two teenage girls. She was diagnosed with breast cancer one year ago after a 3-D mammogram at Lexington Medical Center.

She underwent a year of treatment that included chemotherapy at Lexington Oncology, a Lexington Medical Center physician practice.

Beth also was featured as a model in our Women’s Night Out fashion show this year. The event honors breast cancer survivors and their families, and raises money for the Campaign for Clarity, a capital campaign to expand 3-D mammography throughout our hospital’s network of care.

In this WLTX news story, she shares her journey and what she learned along the way.

Lexington Medical Center diagnoses more than 250 cases of breast cancer each year. 3-D mammography is an important tool because it can reveal cancerous tumors when they are just 1 to 2 millimeters in size. Early detection is key to treating breast cancer. Visit LexMed.com/Cancer to learn more about our hospital’s cancer program.

Wine on the River 2018

More than 700 people attended Wine on the River on Saturday, August 25. Organized by Women of Hope, the women’s giving circle of the Lexington Medical Center Foundation, this annual event takes place each summer along the picturesque banks of the Congaree River in West Columbia. With live music and a selection of great wines and food, this fun night raises money for the Lexington Medical Center Foundation’s Campaign for Clarity, a capital campaign working to expand our hospital’s 3-D Mammography program throughout our network of care.

Thank you to everyone who came out to support this important cause.
