Miletta Knob and Beverly Moore (left) gratefully accept a $2,000 donation from the AC Foundation, represented by Ann and Swede Carlson above. The AC Foundation was established in 2005 by Ann’s son Cody to help pay for medical costs incurred when Ann was diagnosed with cancer. Ann has recovered, but the foundation continues to host a golf tournament every year to raise money for organizations and individuals fighting cancer. Delta Doves will use the $2,000 donation to help pay for mammograms for women 50 and under who cannot afford the procedure. Moore reported Delta Doves pays for four to nine mammograms every month. The check presentation was made at the Delta Doves’ annual luncheon, which featured guest speaker Dr. Allan Miller (pictured), who sees patients at the oncology center in Delta two days a week. Through a series of slides, he showed how skin manifestations can be an indicator of cancer elsewhere in the body. One of his patients, Flora Fox, talked about the importance of mammograms in the early detection of breast cancer. The luncheon also featured a silent auction, a fashion show put together by Tara’s and Nina Suzanne’s, music by David and Tamara Hauze, and a meal prepared by Altrusa International of Delta.
