David Robinson, MD, and his practice, Indiana Plastic Surgery, donated $2,500 to Women’s Diagnostic Centers of Community Healthcare System in support of the Breast Cancer Awareness Fund. The contribution will help local women who do not have insurance and cannot afford diagnostic breast care.
Robinson and his staff raised the funds at Indiana Plastic Surgery during October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Robinson’s mother, Virginia Robinson, died in 2015 of other causes after surviving a 28-year battle with breast cancer. She was involved with programs and services at Community Hospital and was the wife of Edward P. Robinson, hospital administrator from 1967 to 2003. She also served as guest of honor at the inaugural Lights of Life tree-lighting ceremony. Proceeds from that program support the nonprofit Community Cancer Research Foundation, which brings advances in cancer research to local residents.
Mary Nicholson, MD, medical director of Community Hospital Women’s Diagnostic Center in Munster and regional director of Breast Imaging Services for Community Healthcare System, said she is grateful for the continued support.
“The generosity of Dr. David Robinson and his practice allows us to provide exceptional care to more patients throughout the area,” Nicholson said. “His donations are beyond appreciated.”
The Women’s Diagnostic Centers of Community Healthcare System offer 3D mammography with same-day appointments and same-day results in most cases. The centers have earned national accreditations for breast imaging, mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound and ultrasound guided breast biopsy.
