MACOMB, Ill. – According to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. As Breast Cancer Awareness Month begins Thursday (Oct. 1), MDH encourages women to schedule their annual mammogram to help with early detection.

The Macomb Country Club Women’s Golf Association recently held its annual fundraising event to support Linda’s Fund. Representatives Sue Reuschel, Penny Lawyer, Becky Fitzgerald and Tina Moran presented checks to MDH for Linda’s Fund totaling over $1,400.

Linda’s Fund was created in October 2008 in memory of Linda (Ren) Bainter as an initiative of support for women, diagnosed with breast cancer, and their families. It was established at McDonough District Hospital through the generosity of Linda’s son Brad Bainter and his wife Amy Spelman, and is supported by family, friends, and fundraising events.
