Hope for a Cure event held at Elkhart General Hospital

Posted:

Hope for a Cure was the message Wednesday night at Elkhart General Center for Cancer Services Community members gathered at the center for their annual open house.

The event featured refreshments, several vendors from around Elkhart, as well free blood pressure and cancer screenings-- including mammograms and skin checks.

Hope for a cure is all about raising awareness in the community.

Kim Dimos, a nurse at Elkhart General Hospital says, "It's wonderful to know our community supports us and that they recognize that we have some great programs here available to us and that they want to come out and support us in this way and get information that can help all of them and they can share it with family members."

The open house tonight also provided cancer prevention strategies and cancer resources.
