Cancer

You can make a difference this Breast Cancer Awareness Month simply by eating local. Throughout October, when you dine at participating restaurants in our area, they will donate a portion of their proceeds to Chilton Medical Center’s Breast Center. This fundraiser is part of the Chilton Medical Center Foundation’s 9th Annual Paint the Towns Pink. See the full list of participating restaurants >
