Always Caring. Always Here.

Supporting women’s health, one bra at a time.

What is “Bling the Bra”? Bling the Bra is a fundraising contest that promotes breast cancer awareness and raise funds for women’s health. During October, “blinged-out” bra entries are displayed in the hallway next to the ER in the hospital. Entries are submitted by Nanticoke Health Services employees, physicians, volunteers and clinical students.

This contest benefits the Nanticoke Breast Cancer Fund which helps pay for mammography screenings for women in Western Sussex County who are uninsured, underinsured, or unable to meet co-payment requirements.

This Year’s Entries & Online Voting

Voting is now open and will close November 2 at 4:00 pm. During the voting period, everyone is encouraged to vote for their favorite entries with monetary donations either in the box by their favorite entry or online. (Note: Checks must be made out to Nanticoke Health Services; online votes are $1.00 per vote and are processed through PayPal.)  The top three entries to raise the most donations will be announced as winners on Friday, November 3.

Schedule Your Mammogram!

Nanticoke Cancer Care Services and the Mammography team at Nanticoke would like to remind you that the first sign of breast cancer usually shows up on a woman’s mammogram before it can be felt or any other symptoms are present. Nanticoke offers 3D mammography which provides increased accuracy and leads to fewer callbacks.

Please remember to schedule your mammogram and remind all women in your life to get theirs as well!
