Susquehanna Health Foundation partners with local car dealerships to raise money for UPMC's Kathryn Candor Lundy Breast Health Center in Williamsport through Drive for a Cause. This event helps enhance the overall patient experience and invest in the latest technology locally. Diagnosing breast cancer faster and earlier ensures higher survival rates and better outcomes.
Throughout the month of October, dealerships make a donation of $25 per sale of new and used vehicles to Susquehanna Health Foundation. Since the start of Drive for a Cause in 2018, more than $49,000 was raised to benefit the patients in our region.

We’ve already seen the results of enhanced technology in many of our breast imaging facilities. In fact, in one of our more remote hospitals, we installed a 3D mammography machine in 2018. On the first day, it was used to diagnose a woman with breast cancer at a stage that a standard mammography machine would have missed. That’s the kind of impact upgrades in technology can have on people’s lives.
