Florida Hospital Flagler Receives Nearly $11,000 Donation to Help Fight Cancer

PALM COAST, Fla., October 29, 2015 – On Oct. 28, Nancy Gibbs and the Tom Gibbs Chevrolet team donated $10,848 to Florida Hospital Flagler’s Pink Army campaign, which provides screening mammograms, diagnostic studies and education to local women in need. 
 
These funds were raised during the second annual Florida Hospital Flagler Pink Gala at the Hilton Garden Inn in Palm Coast and efforts from the Flagler Beach Corvette Club.  
 
"Nancy is truly an amazing and inspiring woman,” said John Subers, executive director of the Florida Hospital Foundations in Volusia and Flagler counties. “Her hard work and passion helps us educate women in our community on the importance of breast cancer screenings and will provide qualified local women mammograms and other diagnostic services.”
 
The Florida Hospital Pink Army campaign began in Volusia and Flagler counties in the fall of 2010 and is aimed at enlisting individuals to help create greater awareness about the life-saving benefits of annual mammograms and early detection. In its first year alone, the Pink Army enlisted more than 6,000 “soldiers” to battle breast cancer. Now, armed with more than 53,000 soldiers, the Pink Army movement has swept across the state, encouraging Central Floridians to join this important cause. Florida Hospital Pink Army is on active duty in the following counties: Flagler, Hardee, Highlands, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Seminole and Volusia.
