Carthage HUGS breast cancer support group gets $600 donation

Posted:
CARTHAGE, Ill. (WGEM) -

The fight against breast cancer in Hancock County got a boost Tuesday.

First Community Bank donated $600 to Carthage Memorial Hospital's HUGS program, a cancer support group.

Each time a FCB customer swipes their Pink Ribbon Debit Card to make a purchase, the bank makes a 2.5-cent contribution.

HUGS will use the money to fund a number of services, which includes educational and emotional support to cancer patients, survivors and caregivers.
