All 157 mums were sold at 95.7 WCRC’s annual Mums for Moms event Tuesday morning in Effingham. The yearly event encourages women to receive annual breast cancer screenings by selling mums, grown by Cromwell Ag’s Jeff Nalley. Proceeds from the event help women in need afford cancer screenings.
Sarah Bush Lincoln Healthcare Center, located in Mattoon, was on-site with their Mobile Digital Mammography Unit to provide screenings. All told, they performed 15 checkups during the event. Dunkin Donuts in Effingham provided coffee and doughnuts for those receiving checkups and purchasing mums.
