Tis the season of giving, and with that in mind, Christina Lowery donated
50 Mary Kay packages to the
Southeast Georgia Health System Cancer Care Center in St. Marys. Her generous donation will be distributed to the Health
System’s cancer patients to help brighten their day during the holidays.
“I chose to work with
Dr. Brantley for this donation because he is an amazing doctor and treated me like
family when he performed my surgery 12 years ago,” says Lowery.
“He held my newborn daughter during my stay in the hospital when
I needed surgery and has kept in contact with my family ever since.”
According to Lowery’s personal experience at the
Brantley cared for her as a person, not just as a patient. “When my family
lost everything during Hurricane Irma, Dr. Brantley advocated for us,
spreading the word that my family needed help. He has a heart of gold
and is very passionate about breast cancer awareness, which made me want
to give back.”
Lowery is also very passionate about breast cancer awareness. Her grandmother
was diagnosed with breast cancer, and growing up, her family participated
in Relay for Life events in her honor. “This donation to the Health
System’s Cancer Care Center will continue my efforts to honor her
memory since her passing,” says Lowery.
