Cindy Nimey and Rita Albert presented an $800 donation from the St. George Orthodox Church in New Hartford, New York, to Faxton St. Luke’s Healthcare’s (FSLH) Breast Care Center at The Regional Cancer Center. 

The St. George Orthodox Church held a Mediterranean Festival in September 2013, and donated 10 percent of the proceeds to the Breast Care Center.

“Breast cancer touches most people in one way or another,” said Nimey. “Whether it’s your mother, sister, daughter or friend, most people know someone affected by the disease. The members of the St. George Orthodox Church felt that the Breast Care Center provides an extremely valuable service to our community and it’s important for us to support the work they do. We are extremely grateful to everyone who attended the festival so that we could make this essential donation to the Center.”
