The University of Kansas Hospital will benefit from proceeds raised at the Kansas City Chiefs Breast Cancer Awareness game Sunday, Oct. 13. Funds raised from Chiefs events will help pay for the latest in digital mammography at the new Breast Center at The University of Kansas Hospital Indian Creek campus.
The breast tomosynthesis device, also called 3D mammography, produces a three-dimensional image of the breast and improves cancer screening and detection.
It provides a clearer, more accurate view of the breast and allows doctors to more effectively pinpoint the size, shape and location of any abnormalities. This can lead to better detection, fewer callbacks and greater peace of mind.
Survivors and staff will participate in an on-field pregame ceremony. In addition, 100 guests affected by breast cancer will hold the Arrowhead flag midfield.
As the official healthcare provider of the Chiefs, The University of Kansas Hospital ensures the safety of fans and players alike and provides seven first aid stations throughout Arrowhead Stadium.
