Project Detect was initiated in 2005 by the Riverwood Ladies Golf Association (RLGA) with the goal of helping local uninsured and underinsured women receive mammograms. Since its inception, Project Detect has raised over $292,000.00.
100% of the funds donated were used to provide mammograms and diagnostics for uninsured and underinsured women and men in our local community.
In the past several years, Project Detect has provided approximately 300 mammograms a year, with further testing performed for each abnormal result. Those who had a positive diagnosis were referred for further treatment.
Our goal is to expand our focus to include early detection screenings for other types of cancer as well.
Project Detect is funded by donations from the Riverwood Community of Port Charlotte and is facilitated by the Virginia B. Andes Volunteer Community Clinic. 100% of your donations are used for patient services.
In the past four years, Project Detect has donated $130,000 to the clinic to support their work. Contributions to Project Detect have unquestionably made a difference in Charlotte County!
