The Charlotte County Foundation published the 2020 – 2021 Charity Register.  We are so proud that Project Detect was featured in this publication.  Our vision is to make a difference in people’s lives by providing free cancer screenings to uninsured and underinsured residents of Charlotte County.

  
 
The Virginia B. Andes Volunteer Clinic (VBA) continues to be grateful to the Project Detect Board of Directors for the 2020 funding awarded in the amount of $40,000.  This funding is designated for VBA patients to receive critical screening mammograms and diagnostics for breast cancer and other cancer screenings.
 

From October 2019 to May 2020 the total of patients served due to the generous support of Project Detect Board of Directors.

 

* 205 Screening and Diagnostic Mammograms Ordered
 
* 110 Diagnostic Services for Other Cancers
 

Pathology and screening services were funded by Project Detect.  All of the patients received treatment through the established VBA In-Kind Community Medical Partnerships.

The greatest need for cancer detection this past year was with the availability to provide pathology services and specialty diagnostics to the VBA patient for the diagnostics of other cancers.
 

Through early detection and screening we have helped save patients from further extensive treatments and have saved lives.  There is no doubt that the need continues for the uninsured in Charlotte County.
 

The Project Detect Board members want to thank all of you again for your previous donations to Project Detect and hope that you will be willing to support us again this year.
