American Cancer Society

FORT BEND, TEXAS (Ultimate Fort Bend) - More than $160,000 was raised to benefit the American Cancer Society by the Methodist Sugar Land Hospital and the Fort Bend Junior Service League at the first-ever Swing for the Cure charity golf tournament on Oct. 18.

The money raised will stay in Fort Bend County and assist the American Cancer Society in providing more programs and services for breast cancer patients.

Presenting sponsor EmergiGroup Physician Associates and platinum sponsor Methodist Orthopaedic Specialists of Texas joined a wide range of other donors and participants to make Swing for the Cure a huge success.

We were honored to be a part of this important event, said Dr. Jeremy Finkelstein, medical director of EmergiGroup Physician Associates. It was a great way to give back to the community and help bring awareness to the difficulties that so many patients face as they battle breast cancer.

For assistance or more information regarding the funds available, call the Patient Service Center at the American Cancer Society at 877-227-1618.
