LBCHP would like to thank the Lake Pontchartrain Women's Sailing Association for their extremely generous donation of $13,000!
Three years ago, Joycelynn Jarrell was diagnosed with breast cancer through LBCHP, a revelation that made her realize just how important breast cancer awareness and early detection is and how essential the LBCHP was in saving her life. As a way to give back, she sponsored this Day of Pink Brunch on Sunday, Aug. 10 and asked our own LBCHP provider Dr. Denise Johnson, her former physician to speak.
At a dark moment in her life, LBCHP Patient Mrs. C.C. Ferrand found our own Dr. Denise Johnson’s compassion, empathy and professionalism so exemplary, she asked the New Orleans City Council to issue Dr. Johnson this Certificate of Achievement. We thank Mrs. Ferrand for the accolade and hope that the care that she received at LBCHP will inspire other women to ask if they qualify for no-cost mammograms and cervical cancer screenings.
Representatives from the Louisiana Cancer Prevention and Control Program, the American Cancer Society, and Susan G. Komen met with House Speaker Chuck Kleckley to thank him for support of the LBCHP.
