A Shared Mission of Healing

Wilkes student focuses senior project on breast cancer awareness

Apr 30, 2018 | FaithHealth Community, FaithHealth Stories






Wilkes Central High School senior Kelsey Call (pictured in center) chose to focus her senior project on breast cancer awareness because the disease had affected several members of her family. Her focus was to raise funds to help women who were uninsured and lacked the funds to pay for mammograms and other breast cancer screenings.

So Call worked with the staff at Wilkes FaithHealth, an initiative of Wake Forest Baptist Health Wilkes Medical Center and a statewide movement that brings together individuals, congregations, community partners and health care providers to improve health. FaithHealth pairs ill individuals with trained volunteers within congregations who provide comfort and practical help as needed.

Kelsey and her family are members at Dennyville Baptist Church of Ronda, which is a FaithHealth congregational partner. In February church members sponsored a soup/stew lunch to help Kelsey, and $1,000 was given for this project. She recently presented the check to Rev. Graylin Carlton (left) and Renee Rutherford (at right), representatives of Wilkes FaithHealth, for their patient assistance fund.
