VALDOSTA, GA – The Stone Creek Ladies Golf Association recently presented a $3,500 check to the South Georgia Medical Center Foundation to benefit the Pearlman Cancer Center at SGMC. The funds were donated by hole sponsors and the 72 participants in this year’s annual invitational golf tournament held October 10th at Stone Creek Golf Club. The annual tournament coincides with Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The funds will benefit the Pearlman Cancer Center’s Survivorship Plus- Path to Wellness Program. Survivorship Plus is offered to every patient who completes treatment at the Pearlman Cancer Center. The program is designed to assist patients in restoring their physical, social, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. This monetary donation helps support the cancer rehab portion of the Survivorship Plus program. The cancer rehab program is a 12 week program focusing on physical restoration of the patient. Nurse Practitioner Nancy Phillips facilitates the program.
Currently there are 10 survivors participating in the cancer rehab exercise program, 6 of which are breast cancer survivors. For more information on the Pearlman Cancer Center at SGMC, please visit www.sgmc.org/services/cancer.
