Buchheit has chosen to donate all proceeds raised at the Buchheit of Jacksonville to Mia Ware Foundation again for 2016.
Through Buchheit’s $1,353.00 donation last year, they have provided screening mammograms for women without insurance, helped pay copays and deductibles. Mia Ware Foundation provided colon cancer screening kits to patients in the month of March when they partnered with Passavant Hospital. They helped to improve the mammography area and update the chemotherapy area at Passavant Hospital. Donations also provided a UV camera to help educate about the damage that UV does to skin.
“Mia Ware Foundation funds screening mammograms, colorectal screening kits, skin cancer screening, and other areas needed in the fight against cancer in our local communities,” said Kim Brodgon of Mia Ware Foundation. Mia Ware Foundation through Passavant Hospital is dedicated to providing a network for cancer patients to receive education about many forms of cancer and early detection.
