Community Events Raise Over $12,000 in Support of Linda’s Fund at MDH

MACOMB, Ill. – Each October there is incredible support from the Macomb and surrounding communities related to the dollars raised for Linda’s Fund in conjunction with Breast Cancer Awareness month. Several organizations throughout the region held their own fundraiser, with the dollars raised coming to Linda’s Fund at McDonough District Hospital (MDH).

Established in honor of Linda (Ren) Bainter by her son Brad Bainter and his wife Amy Spelman, Linda’s Fund provides financial support to breast cancer patients who have been diagnosed or treated at MDH and live in the designated service area. Linda’s Fund is available to financially help individuals diagnosed with breast cancer, helping with expenses not covered by insurance, such as medical care or family needs including: rent, transportation, utility bills, etc.

MDH has given out more than $260,000 to recipients of Linda’s Fund since 2008.
