Why Attend The Western Jamboree?

The Self Regional Healthcare Foundation is in the early stages of launching its next fundraising initiative: The Equation For Progress Campaign. This Campaign is focused on generating charitable gifts for two big initiatives for Self Regional Healthcare-support for da Vinci robotic surgery technology and support to create a comprehensive breast center for women. These two diseases are the 2nd most common forms of cancer and the 2nd leading cause of death among men and women.

On the robotic surgery front, the da Vinci will help Self Regional bring advanced surgical care to our community and Lakelands region. This state-of-the-art robotic surgery technology will offer options for urology, GYN and many general surgery procedures. Having robotic surgery right here at home will allow us to better serve those who need surgical treatment for prostate cancer.

1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Creating a comprehensive breast center at Self Regional will allow us to enhance experience of patients seeking care with us. Some of our goals include reducing the time from initial screening to diagnosis and reducing the time from definitive diagnosis to treatment in a more aesthetically pleasing facility. Our new breast center will help us bring the latest technology and breast care specialists together to enhance the patient care and experience for women in our community and the Lakelands region.

Funding for these two projects will come from two sources: philanthropy and cash reserves budgeted by the hospital knowing that these service enhancements are in the works. The investment for these two programs is estimated to total $8 million. These two projects have the potential for touching countless lives in our community as all of us know of a family member, co-worker, friend, or neighbor that has been touch by one of these cancers.

By donating to attend the Western Jamboree, you can help us bring these two service enhancements to reality.
