In Brief | Ticket raffle raises $1,100 for center

JOHNSTOWN — Proceeds from a sportsmen ticket raffle held in October at St. Andrew’s Church in honor of breast cancer awareness month have been donated toward patient care services at the Joyce Murtha Breast Care Center at Windber Medical Center.  

The raffle was held by St. Andrew’s Knights of Columbus Council 11308 and St. Therese Knights of Columbus Council 10409, and $1,100 was donated.

Program will focus on hepatitis C

Many with hepatitis C don’t realize they have the infection, doctors say.

Information about the potentially serious infection will be presented during a program at 5 p.m. Jan. 29 in the Myron C. Williams Conference Room in the Good Samaritan building at Memorial Medical Center’s main campus.

“It often takes many years for people who are infected with hepatitis C to develop symptoms,” said Dr. Jeanne Spencer, family medicine chairman and family residency program director.

“The infection can last a lifetime and can lead to serious consequences including scarring of the liver or liver cancer.

“It is important for people at risk to learn about the disease and to make sure they get the care they need.”

The program will cover information on how the disease can be treated, how it is spread and how those infected can prevent others from contracting the disease. Admission is free, with no advance registration required. More information is available by calling 534-1506.
