ELGA Credit Union donates $10,000 to hurley hospital’s breast cancer navigation program

FENTON, MI (October 29, 2021) — In celebration Breast Cancer Awareness month, ELGA Credit Union (ELGA CU) donated $10,000 to Hurley Hospital’s Breast Cancer Navigation Program. The program supports those navigating the complicated and stressful world of breast cancer, providing highly-trained registered nurses to support patients from diagnosis through treatment and reconstruction, and throughout long-term follow-up.

“Like so many others, breast cancer changed my life when it took my mom from me in 2015. Right away, I knew that that I needed to get involved in a bigger way,” said Mallory Hazard, ELGA CU Lending Manager. “Knowing that I can make an impact in the lives of others battling this terrible disease, and that all efforts whether big or small can be life changing for someone, means a lot to me. I am so thankful that in October, with the support of ELGA Credit Union associates and members, we’re able to make this life-changing impact. Thank you to everyone who supported us this year.”

ELGA CU kicked off the month with an all-day fundraiser at its Burton branch. Donations were also collected at 13 branch locations throughout the month of October. All funds raised will support local patients being treated at Hurley Hospital.
