Cowgirls with a Cause raise more than $25,000 for mammograms


Recognizing the importance of mammograms for early detection of breast cancer, Roy and Shirley Burgess founded Cowgirls with a Cause in 2005 in memory of Roy’s late wife, Deborah. Since its founding, the cowgirls have received tremendous support from sponsors in the western lifestyle industry, corporations and individuals who have been touched by breast cancer.

This year’s Cowgirls with a Cause was held November 17 – 19 and raised $20,050 for the Debby Burgess breast cancer fund at Novant Health Forsyth Medical Center Foundation. The annual rodeo event has raised more than $235,000 to pay for mammograms and cancer treatments for women who cannot afford them.

The Forsyth Medical Center Foundation is working to improve access to lifesaving screenings through the purchase of an additional mobile mammogram unit with 3-D technology to support underserved women in greater Winston-Salem.
