The Cavalry, a membership group at Prisma Health Midlands Foundation, is comprised of individuals and couples 40 and under who give $500 annually to Prisma Health Cancer Centers.
This dynamic group works alongside the Atrium Society, a longstanding annual giving society, to fund high-priority equipment and services for Prisma Health Cancer Centers.
Brian and I choose to give because cancer has directly affected our lives. I lost my mother to ovarian cancer the summer of 2012. She was only 61. My mother was treated in Atlanta where she lived. She received wonderful care from all clinicians involved.
Filled with gratitude for her care, we felt compelled to assist the cancer community here in Columbia, the city we call home. We decided to direct our philanthropic dollars to be directed to the immediate needs of our cancer centers right here in the Midlands.
Cancer may have taken my mother, but cancer is limited. It cannot take away hope, it cannot take away memories, and it cannot suppress courage. Please join Brian and me in the fight against cancer today and consider joining The Cavalry. Our goal is to grow to 50 members contributing $25,000 and to raise additional funds through the annual oyster roast and barbecue at our home early next year. As we grow our base, we’ll build capacity and make a bigger impact for our community.

The Cavalry is about our community. It’s about providing the level of cancer care we want to have available for our families and ourselves. Each year, members of The Cavalry’s Leadership Team will review the list of high-priority needs from Prisma Health Cancer Centers to determine our funding focus. Collectively with the Atrium Society, we will choose an item, service or technology to fund.

We’re celebrating the 30th birthday of Walk for Life! For years, we’ve been walking and running for Prisma Health Breast Center in Columbia, S.C. We’re moving to a virtual Walk for Life and Famously Hot Pink Half Marathon, 5K + 10K this fall. You can lace up and get moving in your own neighborhoods or nearby parks—all while continuing your support of patients and families faced with breast cancer.
At this time, it’s best for some medically fragile children to stay home. To help reduce any risk of these children being exposed to COVID 19, pediatric subspecialists and team members have been hitting the road in the Prisma Health Mobile Health Unit to see the children in their own communities.
They’re “Taking Children’s Hospital on the Road,” and we’re committed to keeping those wheels turning! Champions Society and Rising Champions, annual giving societies for Prisma Health Children’s Hospital—Midlands, invite you to be part of their campaign to support this incredible mobile program for the kids.
