Houston Methodist West Hospital recently received a $16,000 donation from the Willow Fork Ladies Association. The money, raised through their annual breast cancer awareness event “Pretty in Pink,” will help patients who need support for breast cancer related issues.

“We are thankful for the support and generosity of this community-minded group,” said Wayne Voss, chief executive officer at Houston Methodist West. “They can be assured that their donation will make a positive impact on local patients.”

Through their Breast Care Center, Houston Methodist West provides women the most advanced options and comprehensive services for breast health, including 3D digital mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, ultrasound biopsies, stereotactic biopsies and MRI-guided biopsy. Their cancer services range from prevention and diagnosis to advanced treatments, follow-up and survivorship. Additionally, the hospital offers screenings, educational events, second opinions, clinical trials, genetic testing and support groups.

The recent financial contribution brings Willow Fork’s total hospital donations to more than $80,000 since 2013.

“It is a great honor to be a committed partner of Houston Methodist West,” said Allyson Hoag, president of the Willow Fork Ladies Association. “We understand the importance of supporting women right here in our community.”
