Thanks to generous supporters of the Liz Hurley Breast Cancer Fund at Huntsville Hospital Foundation, almost $5.4 million has been raised to support breast cancer awareness programs and to equip Huntsville Hospital and Madison Hospital Breast Centers with the latest diagnostic technology.
WAFF 48 news anchor Liz Hurley created the fund in 1999 following her own fight against breast cancer. The Liz Hurley Breast Cancer Fund exists to give women the best chance for early detection and survival. Every runner plays a role in ensuring we can meet this goal.
