The Battle Against Breast Cancer

During the month of October, in honor of the company's former employee and cancer survivor, Shelley DeYoung, Illiana is helping raise awareness about Breast cancer.During the month of October, $5 from every service call, $10 for every new Goldstar contract, and $50 from every equipment installation will be put in a special fund to help other women get the preventive care they need. Each year we've been able to give more than the last and we hope to keep this trend going!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 Local business/doctor jOIN FORCES WITH THE WOMEN’S DIAGNOSTIC CENTER TO HELP FIGHT Breast Cancer

 MUNSTER – Women without adequate insurance, but in need of diagnostic imaging will get the care they need at the Women’s Diagnostic Center, thanks to the generosity of a local business and physician. Checks in the amount of $4,295 and $1,000 have been presented to Mary Nicholson, MD, medical director of the women’s center in Munster on behalf of Illiana Heating & Air Conditioning and Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon David Robinson, MD, respectively.

 “These generous donations will help supplement a grant we have received from the Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust,” said Nicholson. “We’re working to help women believe the truth that early detected breast cancers can be treated successfully. We strive to ease our patients’ minds, alleviate their stress and fear, and replace it with confidence in care that’s close to home. This funding will enable us to serve many more with the care they need,” she said.

 Six years after treatment, St. John resident Shelley DeYoung credits her recovery, in part, on her healthcare team at Community Hospital, the Women’s Diagnostic Center and support from her employers – Illiana Heating and Air Conditioning.

 To ensure other area women will be able to access the same quality care as their customer service representative De Young, Tom, and his wife Sue Krygsheld of Illiana Heating and Air Conditioning, hold a fundraiser during October – Breast Cancer Awareness month. Proceeds from installs and service calls during the month go to an account set up through Community Hospital to help other local women – those without insurance and who otherwise couldn’t afford them - receive diagnostic imaging at the Women’s Diagnostic Center.

 When Dr. David Robinson, also a member of DeYoung’s healthcare team, heard about the donations, he wanted to help too. He raised $1,000 toward breast cancer awareness by running in the 2014 Chicago Marathon and his check was added to the fund. 

 With this funding, diagnostic imaging has been made available to those in need – providing care to more than one woman positive for breast cancer.

 Breast cancer is a disease that can be diagnosed early through routine mammography. The Women’s Diagnostic Center of Community Hospital offers digital mammography with same day results. With advances such as same-day results and coordination between area physicians, women can generally begin treatment for breast cancer within 10 days of diagnosis – saving lives.

Illiana Heating & Air conditioning JOINS FORCES WITH THE WOMEN’S DIAGNOSTIC CENTER TO HELP FIGHT Breast Cancer

MUNSTER – Good neighbors Tom and Sue Krygsheld believe in taking care of their own and paying it forward along the way. During the month of October, the Krygshelds held a fundraiser to honor their employee Shelley DeYoung, a breast cancer survivor. A portion of the proceeds from Illiana Heating & Air Conditioning’s service calls were set aside to help other women benefit from early detection of breast cancer.

Five years after treatment, St. John resident DeYoung credits her recovery, in part, on her healthcare team at Community Hospital, the Women’s Diagnostic Center, and support from her employers – Illiana Heating and Air Conditioning. On behalf of their fundraising efforts, St. John’s Illiana Heating and Air Conditioning general manager Kevin Frump has presented a $4,295 check to Mary Nicholson, MD, medical director of the women’s center in Munster. The funding is earmarked for patients who don’t have insurance and need diagnostic imaging.

“This generous donation will help supplement a grant we have received from the Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust that covers approximately 50 screening mammograms,” said Nicholson. “We’re working to help women believe the truth that early detected breast cancers can be treated successfully. We strive to ease our patients’ minds, alleviate their stress and fear, and replace it with confidence in care that’s close to home. This funding will enable us to serve many more with the care they need,” she said.

Breast cancer is a disease that can be diagnosed early through routine mammography. The Women’s Diagnostic Center of Community Hospital offers digital mammography with same day results. With advances such as same-day results and coordination between area physicians, women can generally begin treatment for breast cancer within 10 days of diagnosis – saving lives.

In 2011 and 2012, the Krygshelds also provided donations to the Women’s Diagnostic Center as a result of their October fundraiser. Diagnostic imaging was made available to women with that funding and more than one has turned out to be positive for breast cancer – providing care where there wouldn’t have been an opportunity otherwise.
