Campaign for Clarity Campaign Surpasses $1 Million Mark

Lexington Medical Center Foundation’s Campaign for Clarity is nearing the $1 million mark, well on the way to its $3 million goal and 3-D mammography equipment is now available at two additional locations in Lexington Medical Center’s network of care.

Lou Kennedy, President and CEO of Nephron Pharmaceuticals, chairs the new campaign dedicated to making 3-D mammography equipment available throughout the hospital’s network of care. Lou recently conducted a social media fundraiser that generated nearly $20,000 in honor of her best friend Kay Kimbrell Garner, who lost her battle with breast cancer two years ago. Friends contributed money on behalf of Kay’s upcoming birthday, when she would have turned 51.

Funds raised from the Campaign for Clarity since its launch in October have allowed the Foundation to purchase a 3-D mammography unit at Lexington Medical Center Lexington and one for the hospital’s mobile mammography van (through a generous donation from the hospital’s volunteer auxiliary).

These units join the other locations now offering 3-D mammography, including the Women’s Imaging Center at the hospital’s main campus in West Columbia and Sandhills Women’s Care in Northeast Columbia.
