Breast MRI Fundraising Goals Reached

The Whidbey General Hospital Foundation began 2013 with the goal of raising funds to purchase a Breast MRI scan system to complement Whidbey General’s new MRI machine.

At the request of Whidbey General’s radiology team, the equipment to enable MRI-guided biopsy was added to the campaign. In May, the Foundation Board of Directors announced the scan system goal had been reached with a $20,000 gift from Island Thrift.

We are delighted to report that Island Thrift then capped the biopsy system campaign with a second $20,000 gift. “We were gratified that we could make a significant contribution to assist in the early detection of breast cancer,” stated Gary Berner, president of the Island Thrift Board of Directors. “We know it will help save lives.”

The new system began serving patients the end of 2013. Read more.

The Foundation is humbled by the outpouring of community support for our fundraising effort. We wish to thank ALL those who helped us reach our goals.

Your gift makes a difference. Please donate to the Whidbey General Hospital Foundation.
