Palmetto Health Breast Center is                   the largest provider of breast imaging services in the                           region, was the first in our state to offer a nurse navigator                 program for breast cancer patients and the first in the                       state to receive full accreditation through the American                       College of Surgeons' accreditation program. 

By supporting Palmetto Health Breast Center, you support                   families in our community who are facing a breast cancer                       diagnosis. Donations allow the Breast Center to purchase the               most advanced diagnostic equipment (such as digital                             mammography units and ultrasound units) which in turn help                 our doctors diagnose breast cancer in its earliest stages.                     Funds also support the Breast Center’s community education                 initiatives and services provided to patients and their                           families.

  EXPERIENCE LAUGHTER  
5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche introduces theatre-goers to the leading ladies of the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein who are hosting an audience of fellow "widows" at the society's annual quiche breakfast. Why quiche? Well, as leader Lulie Stanwyck reminds us, "The egg is as close to the Lord Jesus as a piece of food can get." And for those unfortunate souls who might like a piece of sausage now and again, Lulie warns, "We don't even joke about putting meat in the quiche." The breakfast ensues with its usual panache, but will the society be able to keep their cool when Communists descend on their idyllic town?
