As per the Bylaws, the Kenmure Fights Cancer Board of Directors voted that 50% of the funds raised in the year 2020 be donated to the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Pardee Hospital.

The mission of the Cancer Center at Pardee is to support the National Cancer Institute goal to ultimately eliminate suffering and death due to cancer in Henderson County and the western region of North Carolina. The core values of the Comprehensive Cancer Center at Pardee are:

  • Service to the community through education and prevention
  • Compassionate care to patients and families
  • Commitment to quality
  • Best in research and technology
This is the 12th year that our funds have assisted cancer patients at Pardee. During this period, Kenmure Fights Cancer has raised almost $270,000 for this worthwhile organization. Click for year-by-year donations.

Use of 2020 funds: Mobile Mammography Unit

Last year our funds were used toward a new Mobile Mammography vehicle. 

The unit will service certain geographic areas that Pardee has identified as having a high rate of Stage 4 Breast Cancer.

      • Since early detection depends on education, availability and the funds to make it happen, certain populations aren't treated early enough.
      • In order to reach them, the vehicle will go into these areas and offer free exams.

Kenmure Fights Cancer kicked off this $1 million project with our $59,000.18 donation.

Pardee requests that we add this year’s funds to those of last year for the Mobile Mammography program. They have made significant strides toward the $1 million goal with our kick-off, other gifts, grants, etc., but still need additional funds.

They hope to have the unit operational in August/September and realize our funds won’t be available until October. Projects like this often incur debt for finalization. Our funds would go towards paying down that debt.

Due to COVID-19, this the only capital project they have in place at this time. All other projects are on hold.
