            The Dragon Flies Breast Cancer Survivor Group continues to spread hope and support to patients at RMH—this time with a $20,000 donation to the Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation, to help replace the Hospital’s mammography equipment.

            They raised the money through their

annual golf tournament, and the Tim Horton’s Smile Cookie Campaign.

            The Dragon Flies came together in 2002 to: 1) raise awareness about breast cancer, 2) share a spirit of positive energy following a breast cancer diagnosis, and 3) encourage women or men living with breast cancer to lead full and active lives.

            For 14 years, they’ve been building each other up—and strengthening their local hospital’s and healthcare teams’ abilities to diagnose and treat breast cancer.

            “The Dragon Flies are always looking forward and giving hope to others,” said Erin Coons. “It’s so fitting that their ongoing fundraising efforts will help patients well into the future.”
