Chloe Roy – CHSPC Senior Promotes Breast Cancer Awareness & Raises Money for Mammograms
Chloe Roy Promotes Breast Cancer Awareness
Chloe Roy, a Catholic of Pointe Coupee senior, is a difference maker at her high school. As a senior year service project Chloe chose to promote breast cancer awareness, raise money to provide free mammograms to those in need in her community and present information to her fellow senior female students about the importance of prevention and early detection of breast cancer. In celebration of National Breast Cancer Awareness month, which is held every year in October, the elementary students, high students and faculty of Catholic of Pointe Coupee were able to wear pink for a donation. Chloe was able to raise over $700 and presented this donation to Pointe Coupee Homebound Health Services and Pointe Coupee Hospice to be placed in a fund to provide free mammograms to women in need.
Currently PC Homebound Health Services and PC Hospice receives a grant from the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation to provide 100 free mammograms to those in need. The quota had already been met for the year but thanks to Chloe and the students and faculty of CESPC and CHSPC more mammograms are available. PC Homebound Health Services and PC Hospice would like to congratulate Chloe for a job well done.
