ER in Tyler TexasWhile our ER facility in Longview raised money for Pink Heals in October, our folks at Hospitality Health ER in Tyler Texas were fundraising for Susan G. Komen. The organization is well known for its breakthrough breast cancer research. Over half of the money the organization raises goes towards finding more effective treatments.

At the end of October, our staff at Hospitality Health ER in Tyler met with Susan G. Komen to present a check. Jeanne Shipp, founder of Hospitality Health ER stated:

“Our Tyler location was proud to present a $1000 check to Susan G. Komen again this year. It’s because of organizations like these that moms, wives, and any women affected by breast cancer have a greater chance of survival.”
