According to Kelly Bottomley,
Shore Regional Health’s regional
manager for imaging, “Mam-
mography is the medical ‘gold
standard’ to identify breast can-
cer in both men and women.” The
Eleanor & Ethel Leh Women’s
Center was the first facility on the
Delmarva Peninsula to offer 3-D
digital mammography with tomo-
synthesis capabilities, which can
find breast cancer at the earliest-
possible stage. In 2018, the Center
performed 2,594 mammograms.
The Leh Center also offers bone
density and BMI (body mass in-
dex) evaluation services, as well
as breast and breast reconstruction
surgeries as well as other plastic
and reconstruction surgeries.
“Since the tournament’s inception,
it has raised $18,156, in support
of our patients served at The Leh
Center,” Bottomley said. “We are
very grateful for our community’s
continued support of our patients
and the Eleanor & Ethel Leh Wom-
en’s Center.”
Sixty members and guests of the
Chester River Yacht & Country
Club just outside of Chestertown
participated in the eighth annual
Pink Polar Bear golf tournament
on July 28
. The event raised $2,325
to benefit the patients served in
the Eleanor & Ethel Leh Women’s
Center at UM Shore Medical Cen-
ter at Chestertown.
Tournament co-chair Gwinn Der-
ricott, who is also a hospital vol-
unteer said, “Everyone says that
this is the most fun tournament
they play in because of the format
and the camaraderie. We’ve come
a long way from a group of nine
and 18-hole lady golfers,” she con-
tinued. “We’re looking forward to
many more tournaments, which
are held every year on the last Sun-
day in July.”
Jane Hukill, tournament co-chair,
hospital volunteer and Chester
River Health Foundation board
member said, “We call it the Pink
Polar Bear tournament because
early on, it was explained to us
that finding breast cancer can be
like trying to find a polar bear in a
blizzard. When we saw the capa-
bilities of tomosynthesis in mam-
mography, we had to do our part
to support the continued availabil-
ity of this state-of-the-art technol-
ogy in Chestertown!”
“Many of the prizes and volunteers
were provided by the 9-hole and
18-hole ladies’ golf groups at Ches-
ter River Yacht & Country Club,”
continued Hukill. “The support of
the Chester River Health Founda-
tion, the club’s members (many of
whom have returned each year to
participate in this popular tourna-
ment), and the very helpful sup-
port of the Golf Pro, Scott Stokes,
continue to make this one of our
